Student arrested on drug charges

March 13, 1998

A North Carroll High School student was arrested on marijuana charges yesterday after three police dogs scanned 280 cars in the school's parking lot, authorities said.

State police charged Shawn Shroyer, 18, of Manchester with possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a pager on school property after searching his car. He was taken before a District Court commissioner, who set bail at $1,500.

Two other students will be disciplined for having cigarettes on school property.

The drug scan, the sixth since September at county schools, was carried out by state and local police in cooperation with the state's attorney's office and school authorities.

Prosecutor Edward J. Puls Jr. said yesterday's arrest was the third at county schools this year.
