Calif. teens drugged adults to use Internet

ROCKLIN, Calif. — Police said that two California teenagers used a prescription sleeping medication to spike the milkshakes of too-strict parents so they could log onto the Internet.

The parents called police and the Rocklin girl, 15, and a friend, 16, were taken to juvenile hall. Rocklin is 20 miles northeast of Sacramento.

The Sacramento Bee reported that the girls offered to pick up milkshakes at a fast food restaurant for the parents of one of the girls on Friday night.

The drug was mixed into the shakes and the couple fell asleep. The suspicious parents picked up a drug test kit the following day.

It’s unclear what the girls did on the Internet.
