“The Fallsburg Police acted rapidly when confronted with the reality that the elementary school was being used for the sale of narcotics and worked diligently to secure evidence in this investigation,” said Sullivan County District Attorney James Farrell. He credited “an eagle eyed parent” who was at the party and saw suspicious behavior in the school bathroom. She reported it to school officials who then called Fallsburg Police.
