Student charged with marijuana possession

Prescott police booked a Prescott High School student into the juvenile detention center on charges including possession of marijuana in a drug-free school zone and possession of drug paraphernalia after a school administrator reportedly found the boy had an Altoid tin with Skoal chewing tobacco, a small bag of marijuana and a pipe with residue.

At 8:15 a.m., an officer answered a call about a student with drugs on campus. The student had come to the office to ask for a pass because he was late for class, and he the administrator noticed the student seemed nervous, according to the police report.

The administrator saw a can in the teenage boy's jacket pocket and asked him to remove it. He found the Skoal and marijuana inside the tin and a pipe with residue inside, said Lt. Andy Reinhardt, spokesman for the Prescott Police Department.

The teenage boy told the officer that he arrived at school early, walked across the street and smoked marijuana with a friend, according to the police report.
