TrapperGate: Local Drug Bust Begins with B-CC Dealer

An unnamed B-CC student allegedly had his phone and drug stash seized by the police this week, leading to a rash of subsequent investigations and arrests across the school and county. According to a Tattler source, the police went through the student’s Telegram account to locate other dealers and consumers.
“I had a friend rush home and flush pounds of [product],” said a source who wishes to remain anonymous.
As a result, the school security team is on high alert, specifically making sure students are not selling, buying, or using illicit substances while on campus. According to another reliable source, seven students were caught with illegal substances just this Monday.
“As someone who sells, I stopped selling as much between periods and done more [selling] during lunch or after school so that I don’t have to keep product on me while I’m in school because security has been searching people randomly,” said another anonymous B-CC source.
This uptick in security has led to students avoiding the popular bathrooms for distribution, changing the way students handle and sell vapes in school.
As word of this situation continues to spread throughout B-CC, many students involved are leaving Telegram group chats. “I had a telegram channel, but I shut it down, as did most kids at our school who had one,” said an anonymous buyer.
Telegram is a popular communication platform used by more prominent dealers in the drug community as opposed to Snapchat, which is often used for smaller deals. “When buying [drugs] in bulk or buying harder drugs, you buy off Telegram,” said an anonymous dealer.
Some dealers have been disposing their drugs, while others continue to sell, hiding their products more discreetly at school to avoid getting caught.
The Tattler reached out to Montgomery County Police Department Media Relations and is waiting for confirmation of these juvenile arrests. Please see our companion in-depth feature here discussing the rise in teen overdoses due to dealers cutting fentanyl into their products.
