Norton Youths Arrested for Drug Trafficking

High school and middle school age youths found using drugs in Norton home.

A drug trafficking incident involving middle school and high school age youths led to three juvenile arrests today.

At 4:15 p.m., Norton Police executed a search warrant at 4 David St., Norton.  Norton Police detectives conducted an investigation after receiving information regarding a high level of drug trafficking coming from the residence. Through surveillance, detectives became aware of several high school and middle school age children frequenting the residence and participating in drug activity.

As a result of the search warrant, three male juveniles were placed under arrest and drugs were seized. The seized drugs include marijuana and Clonazepam.

 All three juveniles are charged with possession of a Class D substance (marijuana) with intent to distribute. One of the juveniles is additionally charged with possession of a Class B substance (Clonazepam) with intent to distribute. The juveniles will appear in the Attleboro District Court at a later date.

 Norton Police were assisted by members of the Northern Bristol County Drug Task Force.

Laws were broken. Suffer the consequences. Pretty Simple. Stop pretending to know what happened and look at the facts you are presented with. This is not Monopoly, no free get out of jail cards. It is real life, we all know that, adults and kids, now we deal with it.

I second Jay's comment - and I'd like to keep the druggies away from my family. These kids get a pot smoking habit (and other habits after they try other drugs when they can't get their pot) that they cannot afford to support. Pretty soon they are visiting your home and influencing their young friends, indoctrinating others, stealing your belongings and pilfering from your purse/wallet. These are no longer harmless actions but the beginning of a long and unhappy disruption of your family and of the lives of others they touch. Jen, however, you best continue to keep your eyes and ears open--but there are no guarantees. Even the best of us can't control everything that our kids do or sneak around doing in spite of the efforts and precautions we take. Drugs are now strictly money driven, and those seeking to enrich themselves with drug money don't care how they get it or who they drag into their mess.

Paul sounds like a poor parent who wants to blame his child's shortcomings on everyone else. Kids should be responsible for said actions. If you want to deal drugs (not just pot, but a class B substance), be prepared for the results. Its a shame too many people can't take responsibility for their own actions, kids learn this from the ignorant parents. Jen, You are right on with your comments.

“He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither.” Ben Franklin. I think “TruthSeeker” has legitimate concerns about citizen's being monitored with no warrant. And sadly, folks cheer the disintegration of our constitution on to be ‘‘safe” thus consenting with the government as it grabs all kinds of frightening powers over its people. It's naive to think that arrest means guilt. Life is not TV. The DNA ‘‘Freedom Project” shows that many an innocent person has been jailed and even put on death row due to poor investigations or even malice. Grammatical mistakes are common and to point them out is a desperate argument, especially on a web where people tend to write fast and perhaps too furiously. For example, you can't ‘‘literally” lose your mind unless it falls out of your skull and rolls under the bed where you are unable to find it. We all tend to live in glass houses Jen, whether over confident about our grammar, how our kids will turn out or what will take place in our houses when we are not home. Finally, the idea that good parenting keeps kids out of trouble and bad parenting makes them bad kids is probably the society's biggest myth and one usually promoted by mothers with very young children. I wish those luck with young kids who think highly of their parenting skills. May poor results never contradict your smug self-satisfaction. Keep in mind though that good fortune is often confused with fine ability.
