By Jennifer Petracca

A 16-year-old Chariho High School student was arrested for selling marijuana-laced cookies to another student.

The female student was arrested by a school resource officer on Friday night after selling the “marijuana edibles” to a 15-year-old female earlier that day in the high school.

The 16-year-old was charged with distributing a controlled substance in or near a school and will be petitioned into Family Court.

In addition, three female high school students were issued civil citations after they were found in possession of marijuana.

Richmond Police say investigations began around 1 p.m. Friday after school administrators found a student in possession of the substance that contained marijuana.

The student resource officer tested the substance which was revealed to contain marijuana/THC.

The Chariho School District issued a “One-Call Now” notification to parents about the incident.
