Charges Dropped Against Teen Accused of School Milk Theft

Prosecutors have dropped charges against a Virginia teen who was accused of stealing a 65-cent carton of milk from the school lunch line.

Ryan Turk, 14, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and petty larceny after being accused of stealing a carton of milk and pushing a school resource officer. The incident occurred at Graham Park Middle School on May 10.

Ryan said he simply went back to pick up a milk he had forgotten to take when he went through the lunch line.

The Washington Post reported that prosecutors dropped the charges Thursday when his case was called. Prince William County Commonwealth's Attorney Paul Ebert said he spoke to Ryan's counselor and that he has exhibited an improved attitude.
