A Texas teen is suspected of delivering baskets of drug-laced treats to about a dozen police departments in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

That's according to police in the town of Lake Worth, where 18-year-old Christian Phillips has been charged with LSD possession.

Lake Worth's police chief says the suspect denied trying to contaminate the goodies or harm anyone.

But authorities say at least three officers in nearby Fort Worth got sick after eating some cookies and candy from a basket delivered to that police station Monday night. Police there are conducting tests and could file charges if LSD or another drug or chemical is detected.

Investigators found that Phillips had a list of about two dozen police departments in north Texas, with 13 checked off.
