A 16-year-old girl suspected of selling marijuana, and a 15-year-old boy who allegedly had pot in his possession near La Pine High School were cited and released to their parents Thursday afternoon.
According to a news release prepared by Deschutes County Sheriff’s Lt. Shane Nelson and Deputies Stacy Crawford Zach Neemann, school authorities requested a drug-detecting dog to check the school property for controlled substances during the noon hour on October 11.
Deputy Crawford and his dog, “Narc”, alerted his handler and School Resource Deputy Neemann to two locations where marijuana was allegedly found.
The boy, in one of the two incidents that deputies say are unrelated, was arrested for possession of less than one ounce of marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school. He was cited and released to his parents.
In the second incident, the girl was arrested for possession and distribution when over one ounce of marijuana and packaging materials were found, the news release stated. She was also cited and released to her parents.
