Readers first notified Talk of the Sound that six middle students had been “busted” for marijuana possession and dealing. Now comes word from NRPD that the mother of one of the students involved turned in her own son and implicated two other students who later admitted bringing marijuana to the middle school.
Police were called to Albert Leonard Middle School by Principal Bill Evans on the morning of March 17th. Evans told police that a parent of a student at Albert Leonard Middle School came to school to school with a small bag of marijuana that she had confiscated from her son. The mother told Evans of two other students that might also be in possession of marijuana. Evans called the students into his office and both admitted to possessing a small amount of marijuana which was turned over to Evans.
Talk of the Sound was informed over the weekend that the investigation had identified a total of six students — 4 from New Rochelle and 2 from Scarsdale.
In January, a parent at Isaac E. Young Middle School made a similar complaint to NRPD — that her daughter was in possession of marijuana that she obtained from another student at the middle school. In that case, police went to the school and arrested the student in the building. In the ALMS case, police interviewed the students but have so far made no arrests.
