Shen student charged with injecting classmate with heroin
CLIFTON PARK - State Police say 17 year old Daniel Lewis has been arrested on felony drug charges, after he and another student met in the Shenendehowa High School East locker room to do drugs.
According to police, Lewis injected a 15 year old student with liquid heroin. School officials say fellow students first reported that the pair was in the locker room, exchanging and popping pills.
Superintendent Dr. Oliver Robinson says it would be naive to think Shen is immune to such problems, but that only a small percentage of students in the district is involved in drugs. Robinson adds that while Lewis and the 15 year old made a bad decision, the students who alerted staffers to the drug activity did the right thing.
Lewis will was sent to the Saratoga County Jail and will be back in court December 19. Both students will face disciplinary action, which Robinson said could likely include a lengthy suspension.
