APD Warns Parents After Drug Arrest Nets Narcotics In “Candy” Form
Drugs in a dangerous form have landed one man in jail.
The Amarillo Police Department Narcotics Unit searched a unit at the Hunter’s Crossing Apartments and found methamphetamine in the form of tablets shaped like candy along with marijuana and a gun.
Officers arrested Jabarei Weatherton for manufacturing or delivery of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.
The APD said that drug dealers do not commonly target young children, but the fact that these pills appear to be kid-friendly and because of the danger that these stimulants could pose if ingested by children, parents should pay extra close attention to anything similar that is found in their child’s possession.
If you notice any changes in your children’s behavior (hyperactivity, rapid speech, hallucinations, depression, dry mouth, sweating, and increased temperature, tremors), contact a medical provider first.
