What started as a terrorist threat at a Scottboro school later landed three students in jail for possession and distribution of LSD.

The investigator on the case said he hasn't seen the drug in his 20 years in Scottsboro. So how did they get it? They ordered it online.

18-year-old Paxton Fossett is charged with possession of a controlled substance. Two juveniles face similar charges in juvenile court.

Scottsboro Police said their investigation led them from the terrorist threat situation at Scottsboro High School to two of the three homes of the students, where they found a total of 19 doses of LSD.

Police believe this is an isolated incident to those three individuals, but warned parents the three were able to get the drugs simply by finding an obscure website on the internet.

"Websites are popping up that are completely anonymous and are very hard to track. Drug dealers and drug users can go online and remain anonymous and make transactions. The drugs are just sent to the residences of whoever orders it," said Lieutenant Scott Matthews.

Fossett was released from the Jackson County Jail on a $2,500 bond.
