Crime blotter: Students face marijuana charges

 A West Rowan High School student was arrested Friday and charged with possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia, according to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the report, a teacher observed Caleb Willis, 16, walk around the corner of the 400 building with another student and pull what appeared to be a pipe with some burned tin foil in it from his backpack. Willis and the other student were escorted to the office and searched.

According to the report, marijuana and an ink pen casing used to smoke it were found on Willis. A search of Willis’s car revealed marijuana residue on the driver’s side of the car and two homemade bowie knives in the trunk. 

Willis was cited with having a weapon on school grounds, possession of marijuana and possession of drug equipment or paraphernalia.  He was released into his father’s custody.
