COVINGTON -- Two Alcovy High School students decided to try a little something different for breakfast Monday morning.
"One child had baked brownies and put marijuana in them, wrapped them up and took them to the bus stop where she gave some to the other child who ate them," said Newton County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Keith Crum.
Both students were 16-year-old females and the incident occurred sometime between 7:25 and 9:30 a.m.
Once the students arrived at school, the girl who ate the brownies began to feel sick and complained of stomach pains, dizziness and feeling tired, Crum said.
"She went to the nurse and told her she had eaten brownies laced with marijuana and the principal was notified and the resource officer was notified," Crum said. "They were able to identify the student who brought the brownies and discovered more brownies in her possession."
Crum said the student was suspended from school pending a hearing and her parents were notified. She was charged with possession of marijuana less than an ounce and turned over to Juvenile Court. The brownies have been sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for testing.
According to Sherri Davis-Viniard, director of public relations for the Newton County School System, the mother of the student who ate the brownies said she took her daughter to the doctor and she is fine and is not experiencing any medical complications.
