Police Shut Down WhatsApp Drug Ring

Israeli police on Monday said that they had arrested three youths, 17 and 18 years of age, who were the brains behind a drug ring that used the WhatsApp mobile application to distribute drugs to children in a Jerusalem high school. The drugs were distributed via code words that the one of the youths broadcast in the chat group he had set up.

Police opened an investigation into the youth last month, and then expanded the investigation to include two other individuals. Customers of the three included dozens of high school students in grades 10 through 12.
