A teacher called a resource officer to a Clarke Middle School eighth-grade classroom Tuesday morning because a student was acting strangely. The officer took the student into the hallway, searched him and found four bags of marijuana with a street value of $400, Athens-Clarke police said.

The 13-year-old was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and possession with intent to distribute marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school, police said.

He was released to his mother.

I agree that this IS newsworthy. This kid is in the 8th grade! He's 13!! Are you kidding me? And he was planning on distributing?? Yeah, just because it happened in Athens, doesn't mean it's not newsworthy to us here in Augusta.

A family member was the one

A family member was the one that got him involved in the first place, and the mother knew. I knew exactly how much money my son had and where he got it. I also knew everything that he bought. Mom doesn't care. Releasing the kid to her is laughable.
