GULF SHORES, Ala. (WALA) - Authorities say a school resource officer caught a 15-year-old in the act of selling drugs at Gulf Shores High School Friday morning.
The Gulf Shores Police Department believes the drug was LSD, but is waiting for test results to officially confirm that.
The Baldwin County School District says the student is currently suspended and will face an expulsion hearing.
“Drugs won’t be tolerated on our campuses, and we appreciate the investigation work of the police department, and we certainly plan to assist them in every way possible,” said Baldwin County School’s spokesman Terry Wilhite.
Police says the young man faces drug distribution charges. His criminal hearing will take place this week.
“This is a great example of the school and law enforcement working together,” GSPD spokesman Jason Woodruff said.
The student has remained in juvenile detention awaiting a hearing since his arrest.
