Classroom Lesson Leads to Drug Bust
A lesson learned in the classroom leads to a big time drug bust in Spotsylvania County.
Sheriff's deputies say a 10 year-old girl used what she learned in a D.A.R.E class to tip them off to a drug dealer and deputies say that drug dealer was her own mother.
Friday deputies staked out the young girl's home on Cascade Drive in Fredericksburg.
They arrested James Richard Lee, Jacquelyn Morton and Latoya Clark all of Fredericksburg on drug charges. Deputies say they found several bags of marijuana and cash. The girl's mother is also facing child neglect charges.
Neighbors say they new something strange was going on at the home. They claim they saw people going in and out at all hours. "We were suspicious and I have had conversations with neighbors about what was going on in that house," said neighbor Vicki Lindberg.
Deputies say they teach the D.A.R.E program about the dangers of drugs to 1700 elementary students in Spotsylvania County every year and this case proves the program works.
"She did the right thing," said Spotsylvania County Sheriff's Office Lt. Bill Gill.
