Early today, four Greece Arcadia High School students showed signs of being under the influence of an unknown substance. According to the Democrat and Chronicle, around 11:45 a.m., ambulances were called to the school for a possible drug overdose.

According to 13WHAM, Laurel Heiden, Greece Central School District spokesperson, said that two students were "groggy and lethargic, but they were still alert and conversational." When asked, the students told building administrators they took some sort of pill but did not know what it was; the district did not offer any information regarding what the pill was. Greece Police, however, believe the pill to be Benzodiazepine, a type of Valium.

Those two students were taken to Strong Hospital to be evaluated, and two others later sought medical treatment who also took the same pills. 13WHAM reports that their conditions do not appear to be serious.

According to the Democrat and Chronicle, 16-year-old student, Andrew Goebel of Northgate Manor, was subsequently arrested for distributing the pills. The student is charged with third degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, which is a felony, and endangering the welfare of a child.

As of Friday evening, the district has not released any information regarding this incident on its website or Twitter accounts.
