It's a town that even the sheriff says is pretty quiet, but it didn't stop a drug dealer from selling to minors right across the street from a K-12 school. 

And the drug dealer is only 18 years old.
     
The superintendent of the school says it started when they had a 14 year old student who didn't report home.

"His mother became obviously worried, distraught contacted the police," said Superintendent Patrick Coen of Winfield-Mt. Union Community School. "Police began searching and that process brought them to the home across from the school."

The Henry County Sheriff said that this isn't the first time the 14 year old had run away from home. They had also heard of suspicious activity happening at the house across from the school.
 
"It's right across the street, kids come and go there," said Henry County Sheriff Rich McNamee. "The buses load and unload in that neighborhood, on that side of the school. We like to crack down on it where it hits home the most and obviously right next to the school, it's pretty home."

Superintendent Pat Coen said they will use this as a learning opportunity for students.

"If we can teach the child a lesson here, in a safe controlled environment..." said Coen. "Then we have enhanced their adult quality life."
