While searching the school’s lockers, 12 police dogs discovered the following items in three separate lockers: a marijuana grinder, a small amount of marijuana and larger amounts of marijuana wrapped in three separate pieces of plastic.

The students assigned the lockers were charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and preparation of drugs for sale. The latter charge is a fourth-degree felony, while the possession charges are minor misdemeanors.

Police transported the arrested students to the Erie County Detention Center.

Perkins police searched Perkins High School with 12 police dogs Friday but said they didn’t find any drugs or drug paraphernalia.


Most Wanted

I find it a little sad that any of you find it ok or a joke that any type of a drug was found in a students locker at school. Regardless of your thoughts on marijuana, school is not the place for it. It's not ok. The point is not how they found it. It's that it was found in a school. It was either in the locker to be sold or used in a school of learning. Lockers are provided to students to store their books and coats...not drugs.


Again this proves why weed needs to be legal. Talk to people under 21. They will tell you it is easy to get weed - harder to get beer. (No I don't advocate the use of weed in school either)


Agreed 18 and up.


I don't see any problem with the drug bust. I have a kid and other relatives in Sandusky schools. If you are dumb enough to bring drugs into school you should go to jail. They have been doing these types of searches since I was in school.

Why not run a drug sweep during a school board meeting or during parent teacher conferences? Zero tolerance is zero tolerance. The city and county commissioners meet in public buildings. Lock them inside and bring on the dogs.

Nothing but a Draconian Police state that ignores the 4th Amendment. Nothing to see here. Why were these brave officers not out fighting actual crime?
