Palm Bay 3rd-grader hands out prescription pills to classmates

School officials say no one seriously injured


PALM BAY, Fla. – The principal of a Brevard County elementary school says a third-grade student was caught handing out prescription pills to classmates.

Columbia Elementary School Principal Pamela Blount sent a letter home to parents after the discovery was made last week.

Blount says the student handed out both prescription and other medication to several students.

The school says most of the pills were thrown away and there were no serious injuries.

Blount says the student who handed out the medications was disciplined. Police tell Local 6 there was no crime committed and the student will not face any charges.

The school says any concerned parent can call for more information.
