A Peabody-Burns High School student was suspended March 9 after a vehicle search turned up drug paraphernalia in the student’s car.
PBHS principal Ken Parry asked the student for permission to search the car and the student agreed. Parry found the paraphernalia and contacted Peabody police.
“The student will serve 10 consecutive days of out-of-school suspension,” Parry said. “Notifying law enforcement is the other part of the consequence, as outlined in the student handbook. This is not just a school issue. It needs to be reported.”
Peabody Police Chief Bruce Burke said a complaint will be filed with Marion County District Court by the count attorney.
