A four-month undercover operation in which a police officer posed as a high school senior at Galt High ended Tuesday with the arrest of 15 juveniles and 18 adults, all of whom are accused of selling drugs to the officer, a felony.
Ten of those arrested were Galt High students and six were students at Estrellita High, a continuation school in Galt."It's something that we needed to do," said Galt High Principal Pete Callas, whom police first told of the operation last week. "I'm hoping this makes a big dent in drugs on campus. . . . I hope it has an overall impact on the community."Galt police said they started the sting in January after hearing reports that people in the southern Sacramento County city of 17,000 were selling drugs to teens.They contracted the services of 23-year-old Cherokee Miranda, a trained police officer who had gone undercover twice before in state high schools.Click the above link to read the whole article!

hmm.... I happen to live in Galt. This bust might have been necessary but I was very disappointed in the fact that this week was when the top 5 students of Galt High School were to be on the front page and we ended up with the wonderful narcotic force all over the front page. It makes it difficult for the children that worked so very hard only to have their limelight taken by a few "entrapped" kids.
