CPD: Officer sniffs out teen with drugs at school

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A sharp-nosed vice-principal called the police on one of her students and now two teens are charged with possession.

Officers were already patrolling West Ashley High School when they responded to one of the classrooms for reports of a strong smell of marijuana. According to the police report, the officer walked up and down the aisles of the classroom and "determined the odor was coming from one of two students."

One of the teens, a 15-year-old, was reportedly acting nervous and, when questioned, gave up a green plastic medicine bottle he had been hiding in his sock. The bottle had what police believe was marijuana.

After the arrest of the 15-year-old, officers looked at surveillance video and found that another teen, this one 17-years-old, might also have drugs on him.

The report says the officer and vice principal pulled the student out of class and found another medicine bottle with about 3 grams of what they say looked like marijuana.

Both teens are charged with simple possession of marijuana and will have to face a judge in family court.
