Students caught with pot

Within an hour Friday, campus security caught four South Tahoe High School students in possession of marijuana.

All of the students were cited and released. The first two busts came at 11:30 a.m. when after a long lunch two students drove back onto campus.

Security reportedly told police that they smelled a strong ordor of burnt marijuana coming from the car and then detained 18-year-old Caleb Bonham and a 17-year-old boy.

Then at 12:04 p.m., a guard reportedly stopped another teen-age boy because the vehicle he was driving smelled like marijuana. A search turned up three pipes with usable amounts of pot in them, police said.

Finally at 12:21 p.m. security stopped the driver of another car and reportedly found a plastic baggy filled with less than an ounce of marijuana stuffed under the passenger seat.
