Heroin Entering Rural Kansas: Police Chief

MULVANE, Kan. (AP) _ When police in Mulvane cracked down on drug dealers, they expected to find marijuana, cocaine and some prescription medicine.

What they didn't expect was heroin, from a high school student.

Mulvane Police Chief Dave Williams says four high school students were arrested this week for selling a variety of drugs with seven other people.

Three of the students are being held today in a juvenile facility in Wichita, and one bonded out. The others were in their teens and 20s. Most face felony charges of selling a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school.

Williams says he doesn't know the exact amount of heroin the student was charged with possessing and selling, but that it was contained inside two balloons and sold for about $50.
