LEONARDTOWN, Md. (March 2, 2016)—A male 17-year-old Leonardtown High School student was arrested today and charged with several criminal violations to include Possession of Marijuana with the Intent to Distribute and Weapons on School Property. The student's name has not been released to the public.
After receiving a tip about the student selling marijuana on school grounds, sheriff's
office deputies, in conjunction with school staff members from St. Mary's County Public Schools, conducted an investigation into the allegation which led to a search and seizure warrant being obtained for the student's vehicle.
Police say the vehicle, which was in the school parking lot, was searched. Nearly 100 grams of high grade marijuana (street value of nearly $1,000), three digital scales, packaging materials, a cell phone, two knives, and a hatchet were recovered from inside the vehicle.
The youth was released to the custody of his parents pending a hearing in the Juvenile Court.
