On February 17 at approximately 9:45 a.m., PFC S. Douglas, School Resource Officer at Westlake High School, observed a hand-to-hand drug transaction between two students during school hours.
Further investigation revealed the students were in possession of the suspected marijuana and a large amount of currency. The Charles County State’s Attorney’s Office was consulted and the juvenile who made the sale, a 16-year-old male, was charged with distribution of marijuana on a Juvenile Offense Report, and the student who made the purchase, a 15-year-old male, was cited with possession of marijuana.
Both students were released to their parents. Anyone with additional information is asked to call Officer Douglas at 301-932-2222. The investigation is ongoing.
