LAPORTE | Two more drug-related arrests have been made within the past week at LaPorte High School.

The latest occurred Wednesday when a 17-year-old student allegedly was found with a small amount of marijuana and other illegal items in his SUV in the school parking lot.

A plastic medicine bottle with 2 grams of marijuana and smoking pipe were found Monday during a search of the vehicle brought on by tips that the boy was possibly dealing in the school, police said.

LaPorte County police Sgt. Mike Kellems said police were still investigating whether the tips were accurate.

Last week, police arrested a 17-year-old boy found with a Xanax pill and more than $200 in cash after a teacher suspected the student was under the influence of a foreign substance.

The arrests follow the apprehension of a 13-year-old boy allegedly found with a half pound of marijuana in his locker at Kesling Middle School in September.
