Porter Authorities Make Arrests in Reported Drug Activity on School Grounds

Posted: Updated:

Porter authorities have made multiple arrests this week on reported drug activity on school property.

Officials have been investigating a number of students who were in possession or distributing narcotics on school grounds during the week of Sept. 9 through the 13. Porter Police were joined by the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office, Porter Consolidated School officials and the District 27 Drug Task Force in the investigation.

According to a report published by the Coweta American, three juvenile males were taken into custody last week for possessing approximately 1.4 grams of cocaine. An additional 13.4 grams were seized off campus.

"Those three juveniles were released to their parents per established guidelines for the Wagoner County Office of Juvenile Affairs," Porter Police Chief Darryl Jay said. "Charges in this case range from possession of controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute and possession of controlled dangerous substance on school property to obstructing an officer."

Jay said that as the investigation continued into the week, several other students were found to have purchased or used narcotics while on school property.

Additional arrests were made when the WCSO was notified of marijuana plants being kept at one student's resident. When a search was conducted officers found that the plants had been destroyed.

Officers were able to recover marijuana at the residence after further investigation in addition to a firearm. Two suspects were taken into custody along with two other adults.

Last week's arrests are part of an ongoing investigation into drug activity which began late last spring.
