Police: Seneca Valley student accused of selling pot brownies at school



HARMONY, Pa. - A student at Seneca Valley High School was arrested last week after police said he sold marijuana brownies to classmates on school property.

Jackson Township Police Chief Terry Seilhamer told Channel 11’s Amy Marcinkiewicz that the accused student, 17, sold the brownies for $15 each on Thursday.

Investigators said at least four male students each bought a brownie and one of them became sick. The boy told his mother what happened, and she alerted school authorities.

Seilhamer said the accused student brought $140 worth of marijuana to his friend’s house where they cooked the brownies.

Those two students, plus the four who allegedly purchased a brownie, are all juveniles. The school said it will handle the investigation and the kids will be sanctioned.

The Seneca Valley School District released the following statement on the alleged incident: "Because the investigation is ongoing, we are limited in the amount of information we can share at this time.

“We will work with the police to resolve and address the matter, and will administer consequences accordingly.

“Our hope is that this will serve as a reminder to our students that substance use/abuse seriously impairs the ability of individuals to develop their full academic and social potential, and adversely impacts the educational environment."

Police told Marcinkiewicz that it will also be a criminal matter and some of those involved will be charged with possession and others will be charged with distribution and sale.
