Suspected marijuana found at Glenelg High

March 28, 1996|By Ed Heard | Ed Heard,SUN STAFF

Howard County police officers and drug-sniffing dogs searched lockers and cars at Glenelg High School at the request of school officials yesterday, finding small amounts of what appeared to be marijuana in two cars, a police spokesman said.

Charges were not filed yesterday, but police said charges are pending. Under school rules, the two students involved in the matter face possible expulsion from the school system. The names of the students, who are juveniles, were not released by police.

The raid began about 9 a.m. and continued for three hours while classes went on as usual. The 11 police officers and two K-9 dogs searched hall lockers and the parking lot of the school in the 14000 block of Burntwoods Road in Glenelg, said Sgt. Steven Keller, a Howard County police spokesman.

No drugs were found in the lockers, but in the parking lot police dogs alerted authorities to the presence of suspected marijuana in cars. School administrators made two students open their vehicles. "Very small" amounts of what appeared to be marijuana were found, but police had not weighed the substance yesterday afternoon, police said.
