A drug-related offense was levied against a Union City High School student after a tip led to the discovery of marijuana.
The juvenile student was taken to the Union City Police Department last week after UCHS principal Wes Kennedy found three bags of a substance believed to be marijuana in the student’s front pocket, according to a police report.
The total weight of the substance was just over five grams, police reported.
The juvenile, whose name was not disclosed by police, was charged with possession of marijuana through Obion County Juvenile Court. He was released to a parent.
