FAIRFIELD, Conn. – A student at Fairfield’s Alternative High School was charged with drug possession with intent to sell Tuesday afternoon, according to police reports.
A witness described by police as a “concerned citizen” told the school’s dean that he saw what appeared to be a suspected drug deal taking place Monday near the Biro Street school. The witness reported smelling marijuana and identified the two boys involved, police say.
The suspect, a 17-year-old Bridgeport resident, was called into the dean’ office Tuesday and asked about the accusation. The student turned over four individually wrapped bags with a half gram of marijuana each, according to police reports.
The student was charged with possession of less than a half-ounce of marijuana and intent to sell. He was released into his parents’ custody and is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 16.
