Police have launched an investigation following the discovery of brownies which are believed to contain marijuana and alcohol at a secondary school in the North of the island.
Leading the investigation is the Community Relations Branch (CRB) of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) which said 17 brownies were discovered in a store room, hidden among old furniture.
The brownies were discovered following a random search conducted by the police at the school during February of this year. The search was conducted based on the advice of the principal.
Corporal Ted King told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that four students have admitted to knowing about the brownies and said they indeed contain marijuana and alcohol.
One of the students admitted to owning the brownies and identified the three others as persons recruited to help with the sale of these eatables within the school.
All four students involved in this incident underwent drug tests, but the results returned negative. They were however sent for counseling and are said to be doing well.
Meanwhile, the brownies will have to be tested to determine that it contained both marijuana and alcohol. But King told SNO that this process could take a few months.
