CCHS kids busted for smoking marijuana, possessing alcohol

Multiple Campbell County High School (CCHS) students were ticketed yesterday after they allegedly admitted to using marijuana at a residence on Dogwood Avenue, Gillette Police Lt. Brent Wasson said Wednesday.

Officers were contacted by school staff who reported a 16-year-old female, a 15-year-old female, and a 15-year-old male were all on school property and appeared to be under the influence of something, Wasson said.

All three CCHS students allegedly admitted to having smoked marijuana at another 15-year-old female student’s residence on Dogwood Avenue, per Wasson. The fourth student had reportedly decided to stay at home while the other three returned to school.

Police conducted a search of the student’s vehicles, reportedly seizing alcoholic beverages from the 16-year-old female’s car and confiscating approximately 7 grams of THC wax as well as three vape pods with nicotine-infused juice from the 15-year-old male, Wasson said.

That same male, Wasson continued, had several metal straws and pocket torches on his person.

Officers cited the two 15-year-old females and the 16-year-old female for using a controlled substance.

The 16-year-old female was also cited for possessing alcohol under the age of 21 and the 15-year-old male was cited for possession of a controlled substance.

All students were released to a parent or guardian after receiving their citations, Wasson said.
