OWASSO, OK -- Police say parents have cause to beware of a new teenage drug of choice.  Owasso police officers arrested 18-year-old Christian Ream, Friday, February 12th in connection to the drug.

He's accused of giving "Triple-C" to minors.

"Triple-C" is actually over the counter cough medicine called Coricidin cough and cold pills.

The police report says Ream admitted buying and giving the pills to four juveniles and watched as each of them took a box of 16 pills.

It says officers learned of the incident after parents of a 14-year-old Owasso girl contacted them after she was admitted to a hospital on February 11th because of a drug overdose. They told police she had taken an extreme quantity of Coricidin cough and cold pills.

These aren't the only cases, according to the report.

The report also mentions two other juveniles who were being checked by medics after saying they'd each taken 24 Coricidin tablets.
