NOBLE COUNTY, IN (WANE) — Several students at West Noble High School were reportedly caught with lollipops laced with highly concentrated THC at the school.
According to a post on the Noble County Sheriff’s Department’s Facebook page, officials at West Noble High School busted a “transaction” that involved suspicious lollipops at the school last week. The administrators called in West Noble School Resource Officer and Noble County Sheriff Deputy Brandon Chordas, who found the cherry flavored lollipops were laced with marijuana, the post said.
Investigators believe the THC levels in the lollipops were of a higher concentration than normal marijuana and had the potential for a stronger high, the post said. The lollipops were being tested at the Indiana State Police Laboratory.
The sheriff’s department said in the post that the students involved in the deal “face discipline,” but it did not indicate whether they were arrested and charged or if the school would administer punishments. A call to Sheriff Doug Harp was not immediately returned.
The students were not identified.
The department urged parents to “be aware of these cannabis candies” because they appear similar to a normal lollipop.
