A local teen was arrested at Christian County High School yesterday on drug trafficking charges.
The arrest citation for 18-year old Jontel Harris of Crofton says school administrators questioned him Friday about alleged drug activity and asked him to empty his pockets.
That’s when a large baggie of marijuana allegedly fell out of his pocket along with a pill bottle that contained eight individual baggies of marijuana. Harris allegedly ran from the school when told police were being called, but he turned himself in at the school Monday morning.
He was arrested by School Resource Officer Stevie Tucker and charged with trafficking in marijuana.
