TECUMSEH, Mich. — Two teenage boys have been expelled from Tecumseh High School and one of them was arrested after they were accused of making marijuana-laced brownies, authorities said.
A 17-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy made the brownies and then the younger boy sold them at school May 2 for the older boy, said Tecumseh police Officer Thomas Gilbert. Each boy was charged with manufacture and delivery of narcotics, he said.
“They were working as a team,” Officer Gilbert said.
The pair were then expelled for 10 days, from May 3 through Wednesday by Griff Mills, the school principal, as mandated by the school code, according to Tecumseh Public Schools Superintendent Michael McAran.
On Monday, the school board expelled the older boy for a year, until the start of the 2013-14 school year, when he can apply for admission. The other boy was expelled for the rest of the 2011-2012 school year and put on one year of probation, starting at the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year, Mr. McAran said.
The older boy, who is considered an adult, was arrested Wednesday night and booked into the Lenawee County jail pending arraignment. The younger boy has not been arrested yet, but a juvenile pickup order has been issued for him, the officer said.
Tecumseh, which is in Lenawee County, is about 40 miles northwest of Toledo.
