Three youths, aged 15, 16 and 19, alleged to have been dealing drugs to minors outside schools in Argyroupoli, southeastern Athens, faced a prosecutor on Thursday.

The three were detained after one of them was caught outside a school in possession of drugs, a police source said.

According to a police investigation, the trio formed a drug dealing ring six months ago and sold drugs to pupils in exchange for jewelry and other valuables that most had stolen from their parents.

A police search on the home of the 19-year-old turned up some of the jewelry.
