But the salesmen, including several Manheim Township High School students, did not know they were making deals with an undercover police officer.
More details have emerged about Thursday's arrests of six people, including four Manheim Township students, some who were athletes at the school.
Four of the six, including two juveniles, were arrested by Manheim Township Police at the high school, where a drug sweep also took place Thursday.
Two of the people arrested allegedly sold drugs to an undercover officer in or near a school. Under state laws regarding drug-free school zones, that means they could face a minimum sentence of two years in state prison.
Those arrested include:
· Travis Michael Lobb, 18, of 555 Greenhowe Drive, Lititz.
Lobb, a senior and soccer player at Manheim Township High School, was arrested for selling 3.4 grams of marijuana for about $60 to an undercover agent of the Lancaster County Drug Task Force.
The sale took place at 9:54 p.m. Sept. 18, 2008, in the north parking lot of the high school, according to his arrest warrant affidavit.Another student, a juvenile, conspired with Lobb in the sale, the affidavit said.
Lobb was charged with a drug sales and criminal conspiracy. Because the sale took place at the school, he could face the school-zone penalty.
Lobb is out on bail, set at 10 percent cash of $10,000 and posted by his family.
He was a senior defender on the school's soccer team this fall. He was among a group of students pictured in the New Era a year ago when Manheim Township was named one of America's Best High Schools by U.S. News & World Report.
· Vibul Vick Chhoeun, 18, of 19 Belmont Ave.
Chhoeun, who sources said was a senior at Manheim Township, was charged with selling 1.1 grams of cocaine to the undercover police officer at 5:32 p.m. Wednesday of this week at his home. He charged the officer $70 for the drugs, his arrest warrant affidavit said.
He was in Lancaster County Prison early today, on $30,000 straight bail.
· Johnny Francisco Santos, 19, of 7 Justin Court, Lititz.
Santos was charged with selling 4.1 grams of marijuana to an undercover police officer at 8:40 p.m. on Sept. 14 in the parking lot of Penn Cinema on Airport Road in Manheim Township. He charged the officer $45, according to his arrest warrant affidavit.
Santos graduated from Warwick High School in 2008. He was a member of the Warwick High School soccer team, according to newspaper records.
Santos was in Lancaster County Prison early today, on $100,000 straight bail.
· Tyquan Jamal Osborne, 19, of 2338 Fruitville Pike.
He was charged with selling drugs on two separate occasions, according to his arrest warrant affidavit.
He sold five tablets of oxycodone, a prescription painkiller, to an undercover officer at 7:12 p.m. Oct. 28 in the parking lot of Lancaster Catholic High School, Juliette Avenue, according to his affidavit. He charged the officer $75 for the drugs.
Osborne also sold two tablets of oxycodone and six tablets of hydrocodone, another prescription painkiller and cough suppressant, to the undercover police officer in the parking lot of LA Fitness, 1300 Lititz Pike. He charged $60 for the drugs, the affidavit said.
He also could face the additional school-zone penalty for both sales. LA Fitness is within 1,000 feet of Brecht Elementary School in Manheim Township.
Osborne graduated from Manheim Township in 2008. He played for the boys' basketball team.
He was in Lancaster County Prison early today, on $200,000 straight bail.
Manheim Township Police Sgt. Tom Rudzinski today declined to say whether Lobb and Chhoeun knew or were connected in any way to Santos and Osborne.
Manheim Township School District officials had said Thursday that four of those arrested were students, but today they declined to say which of the four were the students. Newspaper records and other sources provided the information.
