MIDDLETOWN — UPDATE: 5:40 p.m.

The unidentified liquid has been sent to a lab for testing to determine its composition, said Birk.
DRUG TIP LEADS TO ARREST OF 2 STUDENTS
Police arrested two students at Middletown High School today for possession of drugs after building administrators were tipped off.
“Middletown High School administrators were informed of an illegal controlled substance in the building,” said Middletown Schools Spokeswoman Elizabeth Beadle.
“Thanks to the swift action of our School Resource Officer (SRO) and administrative staff, the substance was confiscated and the situation was turned over to our local law enforcement,” said Beadle.
No one was injured and no weapons were involved, she said.
Middletown Police were not immediately available to comment.
“Middletown Schools do not tolerate these types of behaviors and there will be consequences for these actions. The safety and well-being of our students and staff is our first priority,” said Beadle. “We continue to educate our students on substance abuse and the See Something, Say Something campaign.”
