California 15-year-old arrested for allegedly selling Xanax, psilocybin mushrooms, marijuana on social media

A 15-year-old boy from California was arrested for allegedly running an illegal drug marketplace where he sold alprazolam, psilocybin mushrooms and marijuana products.

A 15-year-old boy from California was arrested last month for allegedly running an illegal drug marketplace on the social media site Telegram. 

According to a press release from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, investigators were looking into the death of a female that was possibly the result of a drug overdose on Feb. 10.

During the investigation, authorities identified the 15-year-old male suspect who was allegedly running an online drug marketplace on Telegram. The high school student sold alprazolam — the common name for Xanax — psilocybin mushrooms and marijuana products. 

On March 16, the high school student agreed to sell an undercover agent Xanax, and a search warrant was executed on the boy’s residence in Oxnard, California. During the search, authorities seized the amount of Farmapram that was going to be sold to the detective.
