Fort Myers Middle School student accused of bringing knives and drugs to school

A Fort Myers Middle School student is facing several charges after deputies say he brought knives and several drugs to school and distributed the drugs to several students.

The 15-year-old, who is not being named at this time by The News-Press because of his age, is facing a charge of possession of a weapon on school property, two charges of possession of a prescription drug with intent to sell or deliver, six charges of delivering a prescription drug and one count of possession of alcohol by a minor.

A deputy responded to the middle school Wednesday after school administrators received a tip a student was under the influence of an unknown substance, according to a Lee County Sheriff's Office report.

The student had previously been taken to the school office and had told administrators he was high after taking some pills. The student also said he had given the pills to several other students so they could get high as well.

The school's assistant principal searched the student's book bag and found five folding knives, one of which was about 8 inches in length.

The principal also found a pill bottle containing 39 Tramadol pills, a pill bottle containing three Trazodone pills, a small bottle of vodka, a marijuana crusher and a lighter. Tramadol is a pain reliever, and Trazodone is an antidepressant.

The student identified six other students he had given drugs to, according to the report.

Those students were brought to the school office for evaluation by Lee County EMS and were later transported to HealthPark Hospital for further evaluation and treatment.

The students later told investigators they were given the drugs to "get high," and all said they were given the drugs for free.
