Two Carmel Valley students arrested for possession of marijuana

By Kristina Houck

With the help of a concerned neighbor, two Cathedral Catholic High School students were arrested for possession of marijuana Dec. 2, just blocks away from their school.

A woman saw smoke coming out of a car stopped across the street and then witnessed two suspects throw an object in the bushes in front of her neighbor’s house. After she discovered marijuana and drug paraphernalia, the woman called police, said San Diego Police Department Lt. Stephanie Rose. A detective set up surveillance in the woman’s driveway, Rose said.

A car returned to the scene shortly after noon. Cathedral Catholic had closed early because it was one of several local schools that attended three CIF Championship games at Qualcomm Stadium.

“Two boys dropped it off in the morning, but four boys came back,” Rose said. “Two of them were the ones that dropped it off in the morning.”

The 15- and 16-year-old Cathedral Catholic students were arrested for possession of marijuana at 12:45 p.m. at 5500 Porter Creek Road. All four boys were released to their parents, Rose said.

Like the concerned neighbor, Rose encouraged community members to contact police if they witness suspicious activity. However, she warned witnesses to not touch evidence.

“If you see something, give us a call,” Rose said. “I wouldn’t look at it or open it. We wear gloves for a reason because you never know what something is. If you touch it, it might ruin the evidence.”
