Charges are pending against a male juvenile after drug paraphernalia was found in his coat pocket at Cameron County High School in Emporium Borough on January 7 at 9:33 PM.

Trooper John Whitcomb, said State Police were conducting a security check at the High School. A cost was located lying on the planter on the outside of the building. Nobody was present in the area at the time. Upon investigating the coat for identification purposes, drug paraphernalia was located within a pocket of the coat.

Further investigation revealed the coat belonged to a known juvenile. Charges are pending against the juvenile male who police did not identify because he is a juvenile.

Way to go Emporium! Making the news for yet another drug bust. Maybe if the parents werent getting a slap on the wrist for being caught with drugs and have some kind of punishment their kids would have good example set. That town will never change.

That's right! Instead of taking responsibility for your actions, look for any technicality to beat the charges. OJ would be proud!

First its not really a technicality.anyone could have put it there.but i agree take responcibilty for your actions.but to blame the parents is also a cop out you must be a shrink.i am tring to deal with a sitiuation.we found my son was making drug deals on his cell phone.i took it to the empo police they said they wernt alloud to look at it he has an expectation of privacy.he is 15.his mom found a lot of stuff in his room in stmarys.called the police. they wouldnt even come out said anyone could have put it there.and that happens in every small town around here .not just emporium.Coudersport,Austin,port are all just as bad.and the police departments are all just as useless.me and my sons mom have never been into drugs.So the parents getting away with it theory is shot to hell.even when you turn your own kid in noone wants to do anything about it.

I have been saying it for a couple of years now about these drugs. You have to have leadership from our elected officials as well as community leaders.(teachers,coaches and church leaders) When I went to school we had a JUST SAY NO club in CCHS. The biggest thing back then was pot. Now days its ten times as bad. Kids do everything they can get there hands on! Education in the home as well as our schools is a must!! WAKE UP PEOPLE. The children are the future.

It starts at home if children grow up in a drug and alcohol using home that becomes the norm. The little town i live in you see it all the time! Especially the dope should be legal liberal hypocrites!

amen poster 6:40 - education starts in the home - don't blame the school, the friends, the teachers...it starts at home - do your part

So much for those "Drug Free School Zone" signs.

Thankyou poster 2:59...Parents may or may not be good role models, but these kids are old enough to know right from wrong just by sitting in school, church or news reports. Drugs are a huge problem in our small towns and we all need to take personal responsibility for our part in a solution...

I refuse to believe the person who said they found drug deals and drugs in a kids room and the cops wouldn't do anything. Smeone is making up bullshit stories to make the cops look bad. I've NEVER met a cop who wouldn't go out of his way to do something about a crime being committed. You can't believe 99% of the crap posted by scumbags on here.

Post 8:26, totally agree. There are parents who have their heads buried in the sand. It ALL begins at home, how they are raised, how much parents are involved, how close an eye they keep on their friends & where abouts, etc.etc. To say this kid could beat this, because someone could have planted the drug, another cop out. Maybe so, but I hope they find out where these drugs came from in the FIRST place. And it IS everywhere, not just Emporium, ppl.And getting worse.

jim jackson i was the poster that said about finding the stuff on my kid.and yes his mom did find stuff in his room.and it is odd that less than a half hour after i posted that the police in emporium finslly called and did do something.but the stmarys police refused to help my x when she turned him in for what she found in his room they told her anyone could have put it there.I was told by the police in emporium that nothing will probably be done about my sons phone that i turned in 2 weeks ago.that has drug deals in text messages.and it is even possiable that even though they charged my son with possion he my get off because even though i am his father.he has an expectation of privacey.now the poster who called me a lier i told you who i am who are you.oh the reason they dont do anything is because if they arrest the people that are bringing it he some influental families would be embarassed.all the police in this town are worried about is arresting people for fighting in school or dui.and if you have the right name you can do whatever you want

Mr Jackson I commend you for trying to do the right thing! In this day and age it's not easy to parent a teen let alone having everyone else tell you how to do it. The drug situation is out of control in every town and I will keep you and your family in my prayers!

Ok Mr. Jackson, so YOU start the consequences with your kid. Take his phone. Ground him. If he doesn't listen, change the locks and lock him out. Call Children and Youth if he won't listen. Call the police every time he threatens you or screams or whatever. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. They'll be so busy and tired of hearing from you sooner or later they'll do something. Throw his phone away. Call his friends' parents and tell them. Get the school involved. Stop being his friend and be his fgather. Take a 2x4 to him as a last resort, and know you did everything you could for him, including going to jail (maybe) yourself. How mcuh does he mean to you?

ok 9:56... and the minute Mr. Jackson lays a hand on his son he ends up in jail for child abuse... this family had tried everything... the parents have to work. the school has been involved to the point of sending him to crossraods last year.. i think that its sad that a family is practically begging for some kind of help for their kid and no one around will help. its going to have to get to a point of being to late before anything is done to help this young man. where is a parent supposr to turn when all avenues have been exhausted? i give Mr Jackson credit for having the courage to turn his own kid in to the cops. I know it must have taken alot and been a very last cry for help from the family.

U people gotta learn if criminals beat the system they r just testing their ability to do their job, as for thinking everyone is hooked this could be zig-zag papers whats wrong with smoking weed all our forefathers did it n so did Jesus so why dont u let down you guard or join the police force. Ill bet every one of u speeds down the road I think u smart asses need jailed for speeding, j walking , littering, n just being dumb. I'm all for drug control but if it comes out of the soil it must be good for u. So turn off ur computer n read the bible u tree hugging mongaloids

U need a taser plain n simple

Another piece of the problem is the cost of housing those in jail that are convicted. I have heard the Cameron County Commissioners repeat over and over they need to save money on jail costs...hmmm is that message going to law enforcement too? Just asking.

1056,what kind of idiot are you?If it comes out of the soil it most be good fore you.Cocain comes from a plant.so does opium.why dont you come on over i will boil you up a nice cup of hemlock tea,or mabe bake you a buckeye pie.just because it comes out of the soil does not mean it is good for you.the bible,i read it it is the best fiction i have ever read.revolations was oviousally written by a guy on an acid trip.your reasoning that jesus smoked pot is moronic.do i think pot should be illagle no but it is so if you are doing it you should be arrested

Whenever I hear someone say the cops won't do anything because the kids of the 'higher ups' in town are involved, that's code for "my kid is doing it but so are 'they' and my kid gets in trouble for it".
Yes, I think the suggestion was FOR you going to jail if you have to, to get your kid off of the drugs and the police involved. If ones smacks a kid and CYS jumps in, they are going to investigate. If a parent can't control a kid, then soemone needs to be sent away.... either the kid or the parent. There's no sense in letting the kid sit at home doing the same thing day in and day out, is there? When your line of defense is writing in to this blog, you're not doing the parenting thing correctly. You can't let a kid run hog wild for years and years, then expect them to listen to you when you want. Parenting is a long, hard job, and starts at day 1, not when the kid is getting involved in drugs.

And you are a perfect parent.you probably work for cys or the police.it sounds to me like Mr Jackson and his sons mom have been trying to do something.and not getting any help.I say him turning his own kid in was the best move he could make.more parents should do it.

Anonymous said...

So what you are saying is every kid that gets inv offolved in drugs, it is the parent fault.you are what is wrong with society today.people like you are the reason our justice system don't work.a kid does something stupid it must be the parents fault.don't blame the kid blame everyone else.cudos to Mr Jackson for showing tough love.

1:58 thank you.. i feel the same. and since his father did turn him in i am sure things are being done. for a start child probation will get involved. the child will be monitored not only by the parents now, but probation too. as stated by one person above, i am sure that these parents and families have done all they could and can now get the help this boy needs. Wish everyone on here could see that this is the most important part. Save this young man before its too late and he ends up so far gone or worse..how many teens do we read about in the news overdosing? What is the old saying, "it takes a village to raise a child".. work together to help this boy instead of tearing this family apart..

I commend Mr. Jackson for turning in his own kid. Attempting to get his kid the help he needs by not hiding or denying the real issue.It takes alot of courage to do what he did. As for the police you have to report your own crimes and then wait days if they even attempt to respond. When you do you better have taken your own statements and photographs, interviewed your own witness. They may or may not get back to you after you leave the 5th message at the Borough.
