Sax and drugs

Emil Whitis • Aug 27, 2014 at 2:38 PM

A Perkins High student had more than just a saxophone in her instrument case when officials flipped its lid Tuesday afternoon.

School officials opened the case and found five Trojan condoms, three Newport cigarettes, several rolling papers, a “pipe commonly used for smoking illegal drugs” and a single Atomoxetine pill, according to a police report.

The girl did not have a prescription for the drug. School administrators suspended the 14-year-old girl for 10 days, while police charged her with underage possession of tobacco and possession of dangerous drugs. She was taken to the Erie County Juvenile Detention Center.

It’s unclear who tipped off the principal.
