Drugs at CFHS

A 14-year-old male and a 14-year-old female had “multiple type pills” with them at Carolina Forest High School, an Oct. 15 report said.

The male had a vaping unit and most of the pills, which the report said he was giving to other students.

That suspect said he was selling the pills to get money for a car, but didn’t collect any money, the report said.

That suspect was turned over to his mother.

The female suspect said she didn’t know how the pills got into her bookbag.

The report said neither suspect was cited for disturbing schools or for possession of drugs “due to lack of previous criminal history in school or with law enforcement.” The report said the matter was handled internally.
