Girl arrested for selling pot brownies to classmates
Placeholder Image

A 14-year-old Ceres girl was arrested and booked into the Stanislaus County Juvenile Hall for selling brownies made with marijuana to classmates who fell ill after eating them at school.

Two boys, aged 13 and 15, fell ill at Cesar Chavez Junior High School at 11:45 a.m. on Friday. Ceres Fire first-responders responded to the school and then called in police when it was determined that the boys were suffering from elevated heart rates after consuming some "weed cookies" at school. The boys were treated at a local hospital and told police that they bought the laced goodies the day before from the girl at her house in the 1900 block of Taramea Lane. The boys, however, decided to eat the cookies at the school during lunch.

Ceres Police Chief Mike Borges would not say for sure if the girl or her parents baked the cookies.

School authorities took actions to deal with the boys for knowingly bringing the cookies to school.

It is against state law for anyone to take or consume drug-laced food products to schools. School authorities have a right to discipline all the students involved.
