6 Lompoc students taken to hospital, suspected of being under influence

LOMPOC, Calif. - Six students from Maple High School in Lompoc were taken to the hospital Friday morning after school officials said they exhibited symptoms of being under the influence of a controlled substance. 

A Santa Barbara County Sheriff's resource officer at the school helped school staff locate the students, both boys and girls, who were loaded into ambulances and taken to the hospital.

All of the students were treated and released back to their parents.

Sheriff's officials say there was no threat to any of the students at the school.

The investigation is ongoing but, due to the age of all those involved, no further information will be released at this time.
