A 17-year-old high school boy has been arrested on suspicion of violating the Stimulants Control Law after he was found in a park in Samukawa, Kanagawa Prefecture, in possession of a powder mixed with stimulants and cocaine.
According to police, the boy was picked up while sitting on a park bench at around 10:30 p.m. on Oct 18. Fuji TV reported that the boy, who is enrolled in a correspondence course for high school, was questioned by a police officer who noticed him sitting alone on the bench. He then pulled out a small bag, which contained the powdered mixture.
Police quoted the boy as saying, “I had the drug because I thought it was cool,” and that he got it from someone in a nearby park.
Police are questioning him further on from whom he obtained the illegal substances.© Japan Today
