Marijuana was found in two different locations at Stow-Munroe Falls High School Dec. 9 following a search by a Stow Police K-9, according to police. Stow Police Chief Louis Dirker said this was one of the drug sweeps conducted at irregular intervals at the high school at the request of the school administration. Police said they found a foil marijuana pipe with marijuana residue on it in the morning along with an open pack of K2 blueberry spice, an illegal drug, in a vehicle driven by a 17-year-old Stow boy who is a student at the school.
The SUV was in the student parking lot, police said, and the pack was open and still contained spice. The boy was charged with abusing harmful intoxicants and possession of drug paraphernalia. Police also said a 16-year-old female student from Stow reportedly had thrown “a small amount of marijuana” into a garbage can inside the school, Dirker said. Dirker said the student threw the marijuana into the trash barrel because the K-9 sweep was being conducted.
An assistant principal at the school had received a call from a teacher, who reported that another student said the female suspect had marijuana in her possession, according to police. The suspect was summoned to the principal’s office, police said. The suspect first said she had given the marijuana to an unknown male who was a student at the school.
As the male left school for the day, she then admitted that she had thrown the marijuana in the garbage, according to police. Police said an assistant principal retrieved the marijuana. Her case was referred to Stow Youth Services.
