Mother Claims Son Was Poisoned at School

A New Mexico mom is furious. She says a student at her son’s high school poisoned him and says the school insists it was just a prank and won’t do anything about it. Tierra Lomeli said she’s never seen her son Dominic, the way he was Monday afternoon. She said the problems started when Dominic was given some Hot Cheetos by another classmate at Dexter High School. Lomeli said her son claimed the kids told him there was medicine given to horses on it. Lomeli took her son to the hospital with severe stomach cramps and says he wasn’t the only one who got sick. A Facebook post by a Dexter high student, whom has since been deleted said quote “I guess we all know who gets the award for senior prank… Two kids in the hospital several kids poisoned and the principal covering up everything.” Lomeli says neither the school nor the Dexter Police Department has done anything about it. The school isn’t commenting on the matter.

Under Aged Drinking 

Bernalillo County Deputies want you to know “parents who host, lose the most,” when it comes to allowing underage drinking. Spring is the time of year for huge celebrations for teens, including prom and graduation. They are reminding parents it is illegal to allow minors to drink even if it’s in your own home. Charges include, contributing to the delinquency of minors and violating the liquor control act. Both are fourth-degree felonies and carry up to 18-months in prison.
