DULUTH -- Two Duluth High School students were arrested this week after they were caught selling Ritalin to fellow students, officials said.
Daniel Jin Choe and Shakeem Xavier Wynter -- both 17-year-old seniors at Duluth -- were booked on drug charges after administrators caught wind that the students had drugs and initiated a search, school system spokesman Jorge Quintana said.
An assistant principal told school resource officers Friday that Choe and Wynter were discovered to have "distributed prescription pills to other students," according to a police report. Officials seized at least two pills of methylphenidate, more commonly known as the attention-deficit disorder drug Ritalin.
Details regarding the scope of the duo's alleged drug distribution were not immediately available Wednesday.
Gwinnett County Jail records show Wynter was booked on Tuesday before being released on $2,400 bond. Choe was booked Wednesday and had not been released as of Wednesday evening.
