Group of Florida teens nabbed in undercover sting for selling drugs in schools

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - More than 30 people have been arrested following a nine-month undercover operation dubbed "Operation D Minus," which was designed to crack down on drug sales in schools

Officials said Palm Beach County School District police posed as students at three high schools. They went to classes and bought drugs from fellow students.

Most of the arrests were made last week, including 11 students from Royal Palm Beach High, 10 from Jupiter High and three from Park Vista High.

Only the high school principals knew which "students" were officers. Officials say the officers will continue posing as students, though they might move to other schools. Operation D Minus is expected to continue through next year.

The school district recommends expulsion for students selling drugs near schools.
