A 14 year old grade nine learner at a high school in Verulam was arrested by members of Reaction Unit South Africa after she was found in possession of 24 wrappings of marijuana yesterday morning.
At approximately 09:30 Reaction Officers received information that the female scholar was in possession of the narcotics and intended on selling it to other pupiljs during their lunch break.
Acting on the information a female Reaction Officer accompanied by an educator from the school proceeded to the grade nine learners class.
When she noticed the Officer enter the classroom she removed a pink pencil case from her bag and placed on the desk of the pupil seated next to her. When the RUSA Officer opened the pencil case she discovered the 24 wrappings of cannabis inside.
