Bus driver arrested for allegedly drugging schoolgirls
A 25-year-old bus driver of Anna Regina, Region Two was arrested on Saturday in connection with allegedly giving three schoolgirls marijuana and alcohol to consume which led to them being hospitalised.
Regional Commander Woman Superintendent, Denise Griffith confirmed that the bus driver was arrested a day after the students of the Anna Regina Multilateral School were found in a dazed state.
The News Room understands that two of the girls were discharged from the Suddie Hospital.
The schoolgirls reportedly went to a nearby snackette and became so intoxicated that teachers had to be called. They were then taken to the hospital where they were admitted.
One of the girls told the medical staff that she smoked marijuana while the two others said they used alcohol. One of the girls reportedly claimed they were given the items by the bus driver and a conductor and they became dizzy.
The girls had left home for school but did not show up there for the day.
