PD: Teen Took Pot-Laced Cake To School

April 6th, 2010 by


CAVE CREEK, Ariz. — Scottsdale police said they arrested an 18-year-old student Wednesday after the student admitted to bringing a marijuana-laced birthday cake to school.
John Stropko was arrested and booked on endangerment charges, said police.
Investigators got involved after another 18-year-old student, as well as a 16-year-old student, came into the Cactus Shadows High School office complaining of strange feelings, including elevated heart rate. Administrators said they denied taking drugs but said they’d had birthday cake earlier.
The two were taken to the hospital where doctors discovered marijuana in their systems. Police said five other students had also eaten the cake, but did not need to go to the hospital.
Cave Creek Unified School District officials confirmed the arrest in an e-mailed statement, saying, “discipline will be imposed according to district policy.” The district also reminded parents and students that “no food prepared at home may be sent to school to share.”
The district did not discuss what discipline Stropko might face, but the district’s policy manual states that any student that violates the district’s anti-drug policy could face a warning, reprimand, probation, suspension or expulsion.
