Two Carroll high school students were arrested Friday and taken away in handcuffs after drug-sniffing dogs alerted officers to marijuana in two cars, police said.
The students, a boy at Westminster High School and a girl at Liberty High School, were charged as juveniles with possession of marijuana and turned over to juvenile authorities, police said. Their ages were unavailable.
Troopers from Westminster and the Special Operations Division of the state police were joined in the operations, performed at the request of school officials, by sheriff's deputies, assistant state's attorneys and K-9 units.
Beginning about 8: 15 a.m. at Westminster High and about 1: 10 p.m. at Liberty, the dogs scanned 986 cars in the schools' parking lots, 1st Sgt. Dean Richardson, a state police spokesman, said.
