A Rocklin teen and her friend from Roseville were arrested Monday and charged with “willfully mingling a pharmaceutical into food” after spiking her parents’ milkshakes with sleeping drugs.
The parents thought it was odd when their adopted daughter offered to buy them the shakes, but they accepted. When the shakes arrived, the parents noticed a bad taste and a “crunchy texture,” so they only ate about one-fourth of them, according to The Raw Story.
But that was enough to put them to sleep for the night.
When the parents woke up the next morning, the teen's mother did some research and found that her daughter had been on the Internet after her 10 p.m. cutoff time, according to CBS. She confronted the daughter, who admitted to spiking the milkshakes, and accusing the mother of being too strict.
The sleeping medicine belonged to the teen’s friend, who is from Roseville.
The parents brought their daughter to the Rocklin Police Station in hopes of teaching her a lesson. Was that the right decision?
