Two 10 year-olds arrested for allegedly selling marijuana

HILDAGO, TX (KSLA) – A drug-dealing crime in Texas has shocked a community not because of the crime, but the age of the alleged criminals.

Two ten year-olds are in custody in Hidalgo County on charges they sold marijuana at their middle school.

Authorities say the boys were selling the marijuana bags for two dollars apiece, which, authorities say can add up to some serious money after time.

The boys were caught when they were turned in by a teacher and some fellow students.
