A total of 9 arrests at prep schools were made after police busted a drug ring ran by two graduates of one of the schools. According to NewsOXY, 25-year-old Neil Scott and 18-year-old Timothy Brooks were running said drug ring and have both been charged in the case. They reportedly headed up the operation which saw marijuana shipped from California to Pennsylvania where it was then distributed to three different schools (both college and high school levels).

"They were in business to make money, and they were going to do whatever they needed to do to make sure that no one threatened their business," said Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman (via NewsOXY).

The 9 arrests at prep schools in the area mainly included students who were involved in the transportation of drugs. They were brought up on drug, criminal conspiracy, and other charges. Police have warrants out for more people they believe were involved -- two of whom are juveniles.

The schools which were involved include Conestoga, Radnor, Harriton and Lower Merion -- all high schools. For colleges, Gettysburg, Haverford and Lafayette Colleges all had ties to this drug ring. It's unclear exactly how many students were involved but police have been investigating since the beginning of the year and have at least been able to find the two boys heading up the ring.

The 9 prep school arrests will not be the only ones. Police may end up arresting dozens of students by the time their investigation is complete.
