Pupils charged with marijuana possession at school

Four teen-age students were arrested at Westminster High School Wednesday and charged with possession of marijuana.

State police said they were called to the school about 1 p.m. and were told that one of the instructors had observed a 14-year-old student with marijuana inside the school.

The boy was taken to the school office, where, questioned by authorities, he told of three other youths who had marijuana at the high school.

Police rounded up the others and, after questioning, charged all four, one age 13 and the others age 14, with one count each of possession.

The students were released to their parents pending Juvenile Court action. Their names were not released because of their ages.
