A Lansdale man on probation in the county is wanted by police on a misdemeanor corruption of minors charge for allegedly dosing teenage girls with cough syrup and recording the girls in an intoxicated state.
Police need help locating Teugie Lamont Askew, 28, of the 100 block of East Main Street.
Police said the corruption of minors offenses stem from a June 6, 2014 incident, and as such, a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
On June 11, officers met with the concerned parents of several juvenile females under the age of 14. The parents told police that, on June 6, the girls were inside Askew's apartment in Lansdale, along with another male juvenile around the age of 14, police said.
The juvenile male used his phone to take video of the girls in what appeared to be an impaired state, police said. Police reviewed the video, which allegedly showed Askew present in the room and interacting with the teens, police said. Askew had knowledge of the teens' altered states, which involved alcohol and over-the-counter cough medicine, police said.
