SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) -A Rocklin girl who had been denied Internet access by her parents mixed a friend's sleeping medicine into their milkshakes in order to go online while they were in the drug-induced slumber, police said.
The girl and her friend, of Roseville, were both arrested on charges of conspiracy, and willfully mixing a drug into food, the Rocklin Police Department said in a press release.
On Friday, the girl is said to have secretly put a friend's medicine into her parents' milkshake.
Police said the parents thought the milkshakes had an odd taste.
The unsuspecting parents, however, consumed about a quarter of their shakes.
Police said the parents drank enough of the milkshake for the medicine to take effect. Within an hour, they fell asleep and did not wake up until the following morning.
By drugging the parents, the two girls were then free to use the home Internet while her parents were passed out asleep.
The pair did not remember what occurred.
Through their investigation, police said the girl thought her parents were too strict because they did not allow her to access the Internet after 10 p.m.
They were booked into Placer County Juvenile Hall on Monday.
The suspects' names are not being released because of their age.
"The medicated shakes worked, but the parents became suspicious when they woke up groggy the next morning, Rocklin police Lt. Lon Milka told The Sacramento Bee () in a story Thursday. They obtained a drug kit from police so they could test themselves for tampering,http://bit.ly/135xw8G
The tests came back positive, and the couple went back to police with the results. Their 15-year-old daughter and her 16-year-old friend were taken to Juvenile Hall on Saturday and booked on suspicion of conspiracy and willfully mingling a pharmaceutical with food, Milka said."
