Teen drugged her parents' milkshakes to access internet curfew
A Rocklin teen who was upset that her parents wouldn’t let her access the Internet after 10 p.m. drugged their milkshakes with sleeping medicine, according to police.
The teen secretly put a friend’s prescription sleep medicine in her parents’ milkshakes on Dec. 28.
The parents found it a bit odd when their daughter offered to buy milkshakes. Dad wanted chocolate. Mom asked for vanilla. They noticed their milkshakes tasted odd and only consumed about a quarter of them, but it was enough to put them to sleep, Milka said.
“They had a crunchy texture, bad taste in their mouth,” Milka said. “Subsequently, they fell asleep.”
They didn’t awake until the next morning and didn’t remember exactly what happened but suspected something was up and took a drug test, police said. By drugging her parents, the teen and her friend were free to use the home Internet while they were passed out asleep, police said.
However, the girl’s mother says this isn’t the first time the teen drugged them. It was the second time she felt that way. So she started checking into her daughter’s internet and phone use. When she confronted her daughter, she says, the teen admitted to the drugging, claiming she was too strict.
