Man Gets Misdemeanor Charges for Attempt to Buy Urine on School Campus
Some people will go to great lengths to pass a drug test.
For example, Kevin Manuel Duron, 18, was arrested after he entered an elementary school campus and allegedly offered to pay a third-grader for his urine.
According to the Daily Breeze, he was charged with two misdemeanors for entering a Manhattan Beach school campus to collect urine from boys in the restroom.
School officials retrieved the surveillance footage showing the man entering the school and provided it to detectives.
The Breeze reports that, school officials confronted Duron and he told them he was on campus to give his little brother lunch money. But officials realized that he did not have a sibling at the elementary school.
He was originally arrested for on suspicion of annoying or molesting a child but the Los Angeles district attorney reduced the charges.
Police said Duron allegedly offered two boys money to urinate in a cup for him. Investigators suspect the man was trying to collect urine to pass a drug test.
This case is similar to the 34-year-old Colorado man accused of cheating a drug test with a cash bribe, as previously discussed.
Police said the Colorado man tried to bribe a state worker to allow him to use a "Whizzinator" to pass a drug test he had to take while on parole. He is currently facing bribery charges.
As for Duron, prosecutors said Duron's request was not sexual in nature and did not warrant the stronger charge.
Duron was charged on two counts of failing to register with a school office before entering school grounds. Duron is in jail with a $150,000 bail.
