Students face drug charges
•WINDER - Students ages 12 and 13 were arrested at Russell Middle School on March 23. The 12-year-old was charged with possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and the 13-year-old was charged with intent to distribute marijuana.
The suspected marijuana was discovered while a police dog was inspecting classrooms. During the inspection, the 12-year-old's teacher watched the student move an item from his pants to his shoe, then from the shoe to the teacher's trash can. Winder police officers implicated the two students through a note in which the suspected marijuana was wrapped.
The 13-year-old was transported to the Youth Detention Center in Gainesville.
