13-year-old found with marijuana at school

JEANERETTE, LA (WAFB) - A 13-year-old boy is back home and waiting to go to court after getting caught with marijuana at school Thursday afternoon.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office reported it was called to B. Edward Boudreaux Middle School in Jeanerette because a student was found with what school officials believed to be marijuana.

Deputies said a small amount of marijuana was found in the boy's pocket during the investigation.

He was charged with possession of marijuana.

His name was not released because of his age.

The boy was later released to a guardian until he is required to appear in court.
