PARK RIDGE, Ill. (STMW) – A 17-year-old Park Ridge girl was arrested Dec. 8 for allegedly bringing brownies laced with marijuana into Maine South High School.

Park Ridge Police Cmdr. Lou Jogmen said Maine South’s school resource officer and deans were informed that the girl, a student, was allegedly attempting to sell marijuana-laced brownies to other students for $10 each.

The student was sent to the Dean’s Office, where five brownies were found inside her backpack, Jogmen said. According to the police report the student admitted the brownies contained marijuana, he said.

The brownies will require crime-lab testing to determine the amount of marijuana they contain, Jogmen said.

The teenager faces a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and is awaiting a petition to Juvenile Court. She was released to a parent following her arrest.
