BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

During a school lockdown for a random drug search by the School Drug Task Force and the BRCPD Brave K-9 unit, two students at Scotlandville High were arrested.

Deputies say one student, 18-year-old Tevin Dundy, smelled heavily of marijuana during the search. In the synopsis of probable cause, it states Dundy told deputies he smoked marijuana before class. Deputies asked if there was any marijuana in his vehicle parked on campus. Dundy replied that if there was anything, "there might be a blunt in it and nothing else."

While searching Dundy's vehicle, deputies found a "Murrays Gel Loc-Look" bottle which contained nine individual plastic baggies containing marijuana, according to the report.

Dundy admitted the marijuana was his and he was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish on charges of possession with intent to distribute marijuana and having a controlled dangerous substance in a school zone. No bond has been set.

Deputies say 17-year-old Theodore Matthew Watkins was also arrested Friday. 

While the K-9 officers searched the classrooms in building F, school administrators did a pat down of students standing in the hallway.

The affidavit of probable cause states the Dean of Students, Delwyn Daigre, found a CVS medicine bottle which contained three individually wrapped plastic baggies containing marijuana in Watkins' front pocket. He was arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and having a controlled dangerous substance in a school zone. His bond has not been set.
