Nelson police say they seized a “considerable” amount of marijuana from a student at L.V. Rogers secondary school last week. School officials called police after discovering the drugs.
According to acting Sgt. Brian Weber, the marijuana was packaged in a way “consistent with trafficking.” The student was arrested and taken to the police department, and a “personal communication device” was seized from them as potential evidence.
The teen was released to their parents’ while charges are pending. Police did not reveal the youth’s age or gender.
