Students caught with drugs at three schools

Guam - Anonymous tips led to the confiscation of marijuana and spice at three public schools this week. DOE deputy superintendent Rob Malay says the illegal drugs were confiscated by police first at John F. Kennedy High School, then at Oceanview and Agueda Middle Schools.

The tips helped staff catch students in possession of the drugs. Malay says each one was dealt with administratively. "They received a consequence for that and perhaps even steeper consequence because they are considered to be illegal substances," he said. "We are monitoring the data as its coming in and we are not seeing any huge spike in the data and its something we do keep an eye on a month to month basis."

Malay also asks parents to periodically inspect their child's backpacks to be aware of what their kids may be involved in.
