School officials briefly questioned the student, and then the student opened her purse to reveal a plastic bag containing suspected marijuana and a black and white zebra-printed stun gun. The School Resource Officer responded and recovered the items.

By Maryland law, the juvenile involved in this case was released to their parents, and the State’s Attorney’s Office is being consulted. Criminal charges are forthcoming. Parents are urged to speak with their children about the dangers of possessing drugs and dangerous weapons and to pursue available resources.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Sgt. P. Anderson at 301-609-3282 ext. 0334.
