Student charged after drugs found at school
A Caroline County student is in trouble with the law after drug dogs were used to search the school Wednesday.
According to Sheriff Tony Lippa, a drug dog was brought in to sweep the Caroline Diversified Learning Center, something they randomly do for training or re-certification purposes.
The dogs alerted deputies about 9 a.m. to drugs on school property, Lippa said.
An investigation led to charges against a 17-year-old male student.
He is charged with one count of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and one count of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute on school property, which carries a stricter penalty.
