'Incoherent' Juvenile Hospitalized, Issued Summons

Lacey police officers responded to the wooded area between the Shop-Rite and Kohl’s on Dec. 7 in reference to a 14-year-old male found lying on the ground, "incoherent" and covered in vomit on Saturday, officials said.

The officers found the teen, described as "semi-conscious," at about 5:08 p.m., according to police.

The Lacey Township First Aid Squad and paramedics responded and transported the juvenile to Community Medical Center for treatment, police said.

The guardian of the juvenile was notified of the situation by police, and the teen, described only as a resident of Lanoka Harbor, was charged with underage consumption of alcohol on a juvenile complaint.

The matter is under continuing investigation, police said.

Everyone should be taking this JUST AS SERIOUSLY as a heroin overdose. I hope the child isn't permanently damaged and that the parent(s) take appropriate measures of care.
