It has come to the attention of New Rochelle Community Pulse that on Thursday, January 22nd, 2009 a 7th grader was arrested on the grounds of Isaac E. Young Middle School on drug charges. Our sources tell us that the boy was reported to the New Rochelle Police Department by another student’s parent. The parent called the police after she became aware that her daughter, who also attends Isaac, had been sold marihuana by the boy. The police went to the school and arrested the 7th grade boy without incident. It is not clear why the police chose to arrest the boy at school rather that at his residence.
We will update this story as more details become available.
