Meth allegedly found on high school student following arrest

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – South Lake Tahoe Police arrested a 17-year-old high school student on suspicion of making criminal threats and drug possession, after he allegedly threatened school security staff late last week.

Police responded to South Tahoe High School around 8:45 a.m. Friday following a report of threats made by the student, said police Lt. David Stevenson.

Police confirmed the threats and drove the teenager to El Dorado County’s Juvenile Treatment Center in South Lake Tahoe, Stevenson said.

A small amount of what is believed to be methamphetamine was allegedly located on the student during a search at the Juvenile Treatment Center.
