Rocklin Teen Drugged Her Parents’ Milkshakes to Get Internet Access (VIDEO)

The sleeping medicine she used belonged to her teenage friend from Roseville.

 

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?

with every action there is a reaction. I credit the parents for making their daughter take responsibility for her actions, as so many people today do not. We are a society that points the finger at everyone or everything else being at fault. Just remeber that when you point your finger there are 3 more pointing right back at you.

I agree with Gary. If kids aren't subject to consequences early on they may believe they are exempt from them. I wish I had been a more follow thru mom when my child was young and taught "with every action there is a reaction".

I credit the parents too !! I can't stand parents who totally spoil their kids and enable them to be complete whiners and losers. Now the rest of us have to deal with their unruly kids.

Glad to see the parent made her accountable! That's the problem with most parents there is never a consequence just rewards !

WOW!! I agree with all that has been already said. I am so happy to hear the parents woke up. That girl was very lucky there wasn't and bad reaction. I hope the teen that she got them from also is held accountable.

The girl should be returned to the adoption agency for a refund
