Teen released after tests showed cookies drug-free

Lake Worth_A Texas teen suspected of delivering drug-laced cookies to a dozen police stations has been released from jail.

Tests showed no drugs in the goodies taken to two police departments. Christian Phillips actually delivered the treats to about a dozen police stations, but only two had any of the cookies left over to be tested for drugs.

Phillips was arrested at a Fort Worth suburb when officers smelled marijuana in the basket of treats. Phillips had told detectives his friend may have been smoking pot while he was baking, and he denied contaminating the goodies or trying to harm anyone.

He was delivering the cookies as part of his community service requirement after being charged last year with assault of a public servant.
