     Several parents of local grade school students have heard about a new form of Crystal Methamphetamine called Strawberry Quick.  The rumor is that this drug is being given to young children who think that it is candy.  Lieutenant Troy Hershberger of the Allen County Sheriff’s Department Detective Bureau has researched the rumor and, after conferring with the Allen County Vice and Narcotics Division, it has been determined that the rumor is false.  There have been no reports of “Strawberry Quick” being distributed to local school children or anyone else in Allen County.  Although the rumor has proven to be false it is still important that parents talk to their children about talking to and accepting anything from strangers, bullying, getting a ride from people they don’t know, peer pressure, and staying away from all drugs and alcohol.  Drug test kits are available at the Sheriff’s Department Headquarters located at 12535 Lima Road if parents wish to do home drug testing.
