— Two students at an alternative school in Rock Hill face prescription drug charges after police say a teacher found them with pills on Monday.

Police were sent to the Renaissance Academy on Flint Street Extension after receiving a call from the school’s director at about 10:15 a.m., according to a Rock Hill police report. The director told police that a teacher saw a student, 16, with a pill bottle holding four large oxycodone pills.

The student handed the pills over to the teacher, who then gave them to the director, the report states. Police learned that another student, also 16, took the pills from his sister and brought them to school, where he passed them on to the other student.

Both students were charged with possession of oxycodone, the report states. They will appear in family court next month.
