Two high school students in Napa were arrested Thursday on suspicion of selling hallucinogenic and psychedelic drugs following a month-long undercover investigation, police said. The Napa Special Investigations Bureau (NSIB) determined that the two teens had sold both LSD, commonly known as acid, and MDMA, which is commonly known as molly or ecstasy, in Napa and subsequently arrested them.
The drug LSD, which is short for d-lysergic acid diethylamide, is a potent hallucinogen that has a high potential for abuse, according to the police department. It is a psychoactive drug comparable to the hallucinogen mescaline, police said. The drug MDMA, which is short for 3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine, acts as both a stimulant and psychedelic. It is a psychoactive drug comparable to the stimulant amphetamine, according to police.
The investigation began earlier this month when an undercover detective bought LSD-dosed sugar cubes along with capsules of Molly from a high school student at a business on Old Sonoma Road in Napa, according to police. The detective authored a search warrant for the juvenile, his car and his parents’ Napa residence. On Thursday, a detective negotiated another purchase of acid and molly from the same high school student in the parking lot of a business on Old Sonoma Road.
This time, police arrested the juvenile and served the search warrant at the juvenile’s home. Detectives seized additional evidence related to the sales of acid, police said. NSIB detectives were able to identify another high school student as the source of that student’s drugs. Detectives then went to the home of the teen’s parents and obtained consent to search the property, where they seized acid, uncontaminated sugar cubes, and additional evidence linking the teen to the earlier sales of molly.
Both juveniles were arrested and booked into the Napa County Juvenile Hall for drug sales-related offenses. Detectives worked with a Napa police school resource officer on this investigation.
