Campbell student charged for having drugs

Campbell High School


CAMPBELL, Ohio (WYTV) –  A Campbell High School student has been charged with drug trafficking on school property.

According to a Campbell police report, a K-9 unit smelled drugs at at car in the school parking lot last week. The student told police he would get the marijuana out of the car for the officers.

Five packages of marijuana totaling 4.56 grams were found in an iPhone box.

The school is investigating the issue. Campbell Superintendent Matthew Bowen said he cannot talk about the incident or the student, but did say due process will be followed.

“We want to make sure we honor the student’s rights to a free and appropriate education and in doing so, it’s very important to understand their point of view, their perspective, and to have a hearing. That way, we have all of our facts necessary to make good decisions,” Bowen said.

The district says situations like this are handled on a case by case basis. Parents and students are involved in the process.
