Marijuana brownies sold at school

NEW MILFORD –Three students from New Milford High School have been arrested on drug charges stemming from the sale at the school of brownies with marijuana baked in them, police said.
Superintendent of Schools JeanAnn Paddyfote confirmed Tuesday that three New Milford High School underclassmen were facing expulsion for violating the schools drug and alcohol policy.
On March 18 the School Resource Officer conducted an investigation at the high school after school authorities learned that a student was in possession of marijuana brownies and trying to sell them to other students, according to police.
One youth had originally sold the brownies to a second youth who brought the brownies into the school and sold them to the third youth who in turn planned to sell them, police said.
When the third youth was confronted by school authorities, prescription drugs were found in his locker which the youth said he also planned to try and sell to fellow students, police said.
The three male students — ages 14, 15 and 16 — are facing criminal charges ranging from illegal possession of a controled substance, illegal sale of a controlled substance, dispensing a narcotic and conspiracy to commit sale of narcotics.
All three were released into their parents custody on a written promise to appear in Danbury Juvenile Court on March 31.
Calls to high school principal Greg Shugrue were not returned.
