Modesto police officers arrested 10 students at Beyer High and Elliott Alternative Education Center on Thursday, culminating a lengthy undercover drug investigation.
The narcotics officers said they developed drug sales cases on 12 students.
Sgt. Ron Cloward, supervisor of the Modesto Narcotics Enforcement Team, said the students were being booked on drug sales on school property. They allegedly sold drugs to an undercover police operative who posed as a student at both schools from September through December.
Cloward said the decoy purchased marijuana from 11 students, with most of the marijuana in $5 and $10 bags. He said the 12th student sold prescription drugs.
