A 14-year-old student at Brookfield Central High School was arrested Tuesday for felony possession of narcotics and on a second misdemeanor count.
At 10:40 a.m., police were called to investigate after school officials received tips that the boy might be in possession of marijuana. Instead, when he was searched, six pills of two different types were found inside a bag he was carrying.
The boy claimed they were Advil and Tylenol, but two were in fact Oxycodone and the rest Darvon. The boy told police they were for his own use and that he was not distributing drugs to others.
He was given a mandatory juvenile court date and was released to his parents.
