DEER PARK, Wash. -- Investigators said a Riverside High School got sick after being given a marijuana-laced chocolate bar believed to have been stolen from a nearby medical marijuana dispensary.
On Monday, Spokane County Sheriff’s deputies investigated a Commercial Burglary at JD’s Garden on N. Newport Highway. Employees determined the burglary took place sometime late Sunday night or early Monday morning. Thieves stole 22 ounces of marijuana, two custom marijuana pipes and 38 THC infused chocolate bars were stolen, authorities said.
Later Monday morning, deputies responded to Riverside High School on a drug possession call. A juvenile male student reported to school administration he was given a chocolate bar by another student. He said that after he ate it, the other student told him the chocolate bar was laced with marijuana. He was taken to the hospital by his mother and it was confirmed he had THC in his system. The male that provided the chocolate bar was immediately expelled from school.
The investigation is on-going and arrests for the burglary were expected. Deputies are also looking into possible charges for the student providing the THC-laced chocolate bar.
Crime Stoppers was offering a cash reward for anyone providing information leading to an arrest in the burglary. Persons with information should call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 1-800-222-TIPS.
