Dawson Creek RCMP actively investigating drug-laced cookies in elementary school

“The investigation is in its early stages and the Dawson Creek RCMP are working in partnership with School District #59 and the Ministry for Children and Family Development in order to conduct a full and thorough investigation to determine if any criminality exists,” Cpl. Dave Tyreman said in a written statement.

Superintendent of School District 59 Leslie Lambie released a statement earlier in the week confirming such allegations, and went on to validate the district’s continued implementation of programs educating students on the dangers of drug use and the risks of sharing food, asserting “student safety to be its highest priority.”

“Any parents who may have noticed anything strange or unusual with their child or even sought medical attention are encouraged to call police,” Cpl. Tyreman concludes.

The Dawson Creek RCMP detachment can be reached at 250 784 3700.
