CHARLESTON, S.C. — Police found a rifle and drugs in the vehicles of two 17-year-olds at a South Carolina high school.
Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis tells news outlets that West Ashley High School officials on Thursday requested a K-9 sweep of the student parking lot, which yielded a gram of marijuana and a rifle in the car of a male student and prescription drugs and drug paraphernalia in the car of a female student.
The boy is charged with simple possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and having a weapon on school property. The girl is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance.
It’s unclear what disciplinary action they might face at school.
