BULLHEAD CITY—A 17-year-old Mohave High School student has been arrested on charges involving drugs and trafficking in stolen property.
Bullhead City Police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said the high school resource officer was called to the office shortly before 9 a.m. Thursday morning for a report of a student smelling of marijuana.
“The student reportedly smelled like marijuana and appeared to be under the influence,” said Fromelt.
A search of the student’s vehicle reportedly uncovered numerous drug paraphernalia items, marijuana and cannabis wax. The vehicle was parked on school property, said Fromelt.
Further investigation reportedly uncovered the students alleged involvement in missing high school discount fundraiser cards.
Fromelt said at the end of March a student reported cards missing from their backpack.
“Since then, there have been reports of some teens selling the cards and pocketing the money,” explained Fromelt.
The discount cards are sold as a fundraiser for school clubs and sports.
When police searched the students vehicle Thursday, they reportedly found several of the stolen discount cards inside.
The student was arrested on suspicion of possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana on school grounds, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a narcotic substance-cannabis wax, possession of stolen property and trafficking in stolen property.
He was taken to the Mohave County Juvenile Detention Center in Kingman.
