Police: Westfield High Student Sold Marijuana Brownies at School
WESTFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — A Westfield student has denied charges that he allegedly sold marijuana-laced brownies at the high school.
Samuel Gendreau, 18, of Westfield appeared in Westfield District Court Wednesday on a summons following a criminal complaint, which charges him with possession to distribute a Class D substance and drug violation near a school.
Westfield Police Sgt. Steve Dickinson says that back on March 26, a student at Westfield High School went to the nurse’s office, feeling ill, after ingesting a marijuana-laced brownie.
That student reportedly admitted to eating the brownie, and Dickinson adds that a further investigation by school officials and the school resource officer found that other students had also eaten the brownies, which were allegedly distributed by Gendreau.
Gendreau’s attorney, Tom Kokonowski, tells ABC40 that “We denied the charges today and we will certainly be putting the government’s allegations and evidence to the test.”
A plea of not guilty was entered in court Wednesday, and Gendreau was released on person recognizance.
A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for July 30.
