A student at a high school in Rock Hill was charged with marijuana possession after school and police officials smelled the drug while the student was in the in-school suspension room, officers said.

The 15-year-old student had almost three grams of the drug, along with four packs of cigars, which officers found during a search at Northwestern High School, according to a Rock Hill Police Department report.

School officials and the resource officer for the school were called April 20 when someone smelled marijuana in the classroom that houses students serving in-school suspension. The drugs were seized by police, the report states.

The student was cited as a juvenile and not named. The student was released to the custody of family members.
