Norwood couple arrested in drug ring headed by a teenager

According to the Enquirer, Stacy Lampe, 28, and Cody Lampe, 31, have been arrested for allegedly growing marijuana in their Norwood home and then supplying it to a Mason High School teen who sold about $20,000 worth of the drug each month.  Authorities seized 209 plants of high-grade marijuana from the Lampes.  The teen, Tyler Pagenstecher, 17, is a former honor roll student from Mason and had at least six current former Mason High School students working under him to be the primary source for marijuana in the Mason School District.  More than 600 marijuana plants valued at $5,000 with a street value of $3 million were seized in the investigation.
