WALDORF, Md. — The following message was recently posted by the Charles County Sheriff’s Office after a School Resource Officer observed a student drug transaction:

“On February 17 at approximately 9:45 a.m., PFC S. Douglas, School Resource Officer at Westlake High School, observed a hand-to-hand drug transaction between two students during school hours.

Further investigation revealed the students were in possession of the suspected marijuana and a large amount of currency.

The Charles County State’s Attorney’s Office was consulted and the juvenile who made the sale, a 16-year-old male, was charged with distribution of marijuana on a Juvenile Offense Report, and the student who made the purchase, a 15-year-old male, was cited with possession of marijuana.

Both students were released to their parents. Anyone with additional information is asked to call Officer Douglas at 301-932-2222.

The investigation is ongoing.”
