Los Angeles Middle School Drug Sting Scrutinized


Three administrators at Potter Middle School are being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) for conducting a sting operation where they asked a student to buy pot from a classmate suspected of dealing drugs on campus.

The school administrators who orchestrated the sting have been reassigned while the LAPD conducts its investigation.
