2 Valley View High students accused of buying, selling drugs on campus

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro police cited two high school students Monday; one accused of selling drugs on campus, the other accused of buying them.

The arrest came after an officer reportedly received a tip that a 17-year-old male had sold pills to a 16-year-old female at Valley View High School, 5709 Kersey Lane.

Assistant Principal Pam Crain called the female suspect to the office and questioned her about the alleged incident, the initial incident report stated.

The girl reportedly admitted she bought four hydrocodone pills. She then "took them from her backpack and handed them" to Crain who then gave them to the officer, the report said.

Crain then called the male suspect to the office and questioned him.

When he denied any involvement, Crain told the boy she needed to search his backpack and jacket, the report said.

The suspect then pulled a "small green prescription bottle from an inside jacket pocket and handed it" to the officer.

The officer cited the boy with possession with intent to deliver and released him into the custody of his mother.

He also released the girl into the custody of her mother after citing her with possession of a controlled substance.
