Teen caught smoking marijuana at CCHS

MOULTRIE — A 16-year-old was allegedly caught smoking marijuana Tuesday at Colquitt County High School.

The girl, whose name was not released because of her age, was charged as a juvenile and released to her mother, a Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office report said.

Principal Bob Jones called for a deputy to witness as he searched the teen’s automobile. Jones told the deputy she was caught smoking marijuana behind the 10th grade building on campus, and when school administrators questioned her, she allegedly said there was some marijuana in the vehicle.

The deputy said Jones searched the car in his presence and found a small amount of suspected marijuana in a plastic bag in the glove compartment. He said there were also lots of loose bits and pieces of what looked like marijuana between the seats and on the floorboard.

The substance was turned over to the Drug Enforcement Team to verify whether it was marijuana.
