— A South Pointe High School student faces drug and pill charges after school administrators told police he brought marijuana to school in a black sock stored in a can of peanuts.

School officials were called to a classroom last week after teachers reported that a student, 16, smelled like marijuana once he returned from the Applied Technology Center, according to a Rock Hill Police report.

The school’s principal searched the boy’s book bag and found a can of Planters peanuts, the report states. The school’s resource officer opened the can and found a black sock.

Inside the sock was: loose marijuana, two baggies of pot, a baggie of marijuana seeds, another baggie with 14 red, white and blue pills and a third bag filled with five more pills, the report states.

The boy was charged with possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of prescription pills, the report states. After his arrest, he was released to his mother.
