Two Local Student Faces Marijuana Charges

Two juveniles are facing drug charges and possible expulsion after being caught with illegal substances at a local school.

A teacher confiscated a small can filled with a nickel size amount of marijuana.

Ashford's police chief says drugs can easily be handed off between students using anything from ball point pens to beef jerky cans.

School officials say drug incidents like this are very rare, but there are harsh penalties for students who violate the school's code of conduct.

The two 14-year-old boys will be charged with possession of marijuana.

A disciplinary committee will make a recommendation on how long the students will stay in alternative school.
