A group of kids accused of selling drugs at their high school are about to learn a lesson the hard way -- 24 students were arrested yesterday in a raid, reports KTLA.

Twelve of the teenagers taken into custody were from Vista De Lago High School in Moreno Valley, and the other twelve were from Elsinore High School in Wildomar. The arrests were part of an ongoing investigation, and yielded the seizure of pot, meth, ecstasy, cocaine and prescription drugs.

The kids are being held at Riverside's juvenile hall.
