Newberry deputies: Juvenile faces charges for distributing marijuana

The Newberry County Sheriff’s Office says a 17 year-old was taken into custody for Distribution of Marijuana.

NEWBERRY, S.C. (WOLO)— The Newberry County Sheriff’s Office says a 17 year-old was taken into custody for Distribution of Marijuana.

On Dec. 12 deputies responded to an EMS call after a local Newberry school student was found non-responsive due to affects from an edible marijuana cereal bar.

The victim told authorities they had received the edible from another student at the school, who was later identified and taken into custody.

The suspect was taken to the Newberry Sheriff’s Office where an interview led deputies to Union County where a search warrant was done on the student’s home, say officials.

Additional edibles, marijuana, money and a gun were found at the home. The juvenile is expected to face criminal charges in Union City.
