Two held in girl?s Ecstasy overdose By Michelle Durand, Daily Journal Staff
One teenager and one man were arrested this weekend for allegedly supplying the drug Ecstasy to a 14-year-old Belmont girl who overdosed Saturday.
The girl, a student at Ralston Intermediate School, remains in critical condition, according to Belmong police.
A 17-year-old Belmont male teenager was arrested Saturday night in connection with the overdose. The following morning, 20-year-old Antonio Rivera of Belmont was arrested for reportedly supplying the drug.
The girl was attending a sleepover with two other 14-year-old girls in the 2500 block of Lincoln Avenue when Belmont Police and South County Fire responded to a 911 call from the home at 7:15 a.m. The girl, who was unconscious, was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.
Later that night, the 17-year-old youth was arrested and charged with furnishing Ecstasy to the victim. His name is being withheld because he is a minor and police have not released his relationship to the victim.
Rivera was arrested at home early Sunday morning after Belmont police and agents from the San Mateo County Narcotics Task Force arrived with a search warrant. Rivera was charged with furnishing a controlled substance to a minor, child endangerment, possession of a controlled substance for sale and conspiracy. He was booked into San Mateo County Jail and should be arraigned on the charges early this week.
Ecstasy pills, rock cocaine, powder cocaine and marijuana were confiscated in connection with the case, according to Belmont police who continue to investigate the incident.
