Residents React To Students Charged In Main Line Drug Bust

Posted: Updated:
HAVERFORD, Pa. -

People across the country are talking about the drug ring allegedly run by the prep school graduates.

Neil Scott and Timothy Brooks are accused of supplying Main Line high schools with drugs and hiring students to sell them.

Fox 29's Dave Schratwieser reports.

Monday's take down of "The Main Line Takeover Project" drug ring still has residents on the main line buzzing.

Parents are troubled over allegations that two graduates of the prestigious Haverford School had set up shop in their communities trying to peddle drugs to their kids.

“I was shocked and disturbed quite frankly when I heard about it. The extent of it, the ring that was being formed," Fox 29's Legal Analyst Ken Rothweiler said.

Rothweiler’s oldest son graduated from the Haverford School, another son still goes there. He says word that former lacrosse players Neil Scott and Timothy Brooks are accused of running a big time marijuana, coke and ecstasy ring targeting local high schools and colleges is troubling.

“I couldn't believe that two Haverford graduates would be participating in something like that,” Rothweiler said.

Scott and Brooks allegedly targeted schools like Radnor High, Harriton High School and Lower Merion High, along with the Haverford School and Conestoga High . A spokesman at Lower Merion said a letter would be going home to parents, but school officials did not consider this to be a quote "massive story."

“When you start bringing guns into it, along with the drugs and the money, you gonna have some problems like we've had in other high schools across the country. i got real worried real quickly,” Rothweiler said.

Several schools pledged continued cooperation with law enforcement as they root out drug operations like this. Rothweiler believes this is a good time for parents to have a talk with their children.

“The first thing I did was have a discussion with my son about all this,” Rothweiler said. “If the parents aren't talking to their kids on the Main Line then something's wrong with the parenting going on the main line.”
