Officer’s Narrative:
[Please note: The following is a direct transcription from the officer’s narrative report. We do not fix any spelling or grammatical errors. Any changes made by our staff are placed inside brackets. Some errors may exist.]

On 02/04/2022, Assistant Principal [WITNESS #1] requested for an SRO to meet with him in his office. On my arrived in the office, [WITNESS #1] was talking with a student [REDACTED BY AGENCY] who was also present in the office. [WITNESS #1] handed me a bag that contained two empty vape cartridges and then a electronic vape pen that had a cartridge attached.

That cartridge contained a brown thick type of oil that is consistent with THC. (Based on my training experience, I believe it to be consistent with THC). The two other cartridges had little to no content. There was also a second electronic vape pen with no cartridge. [WITNESS #1] stated earlier [REDACTED BY AGENCY] had gave the vape to another student [REDACTED BY AGENCY] to use and who was now being treated by the school nurse.

Also [REDACTED BY AGENCY] had passed the vape off to another student Jacob Powell while in the bathroom. (Earlier, I had walked into the boys bathroom on Brantley Hall when [WITNESS #1] called out over the school radio asking if anyone had seen student [REDACTED BY AGENCY].

There were three to four students present in the bathroo when I walked in. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] being one of those students overheard the radio transmission over my school issued radio. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] spoke up and stated “That’s me”. I radioed [WITNESS #1] and advised him of [REDACTED BY AGENCY] location. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] went with [WITNESS #1] to the office).

[WITNESS #1] stated when [REDACTED BY AGENCY] overheard the radio traffic [REDACTED BY AGENCY] handed [REDACTED BY AGENCY] the bag with the vape pen and cartridges. [WITNESS #1] stated when he spoke with [REDACTED BY AGENCY] he had found out that [REDACTED BY AGENCY] had given the bag with the vape pens and cartridges to Jacob.

[WITNESS #1] stated he went and got Jacob and got the bag with the vape pens and cartridges. [WITNESS #1] also stated the bag with the vape pens/cartridges had supposedly been passed to [REDACTED BY AGENCY] on the school bus, that [REDACTED BY AGENCY] had told him it was a male student named, [REDACTED BY AGENCY], and that [REDACTED BY AGENCY] was in his third block class.

[WITNESS #1] looked on the schools Infinite Campus and could not find a [REDACTED BY AGENCY] but did find a [REDACTED BY AGENCY] who is also a student in [REDACTED BY AGENCY] third block class. I asked [REDACTED BY AGENCY] about [REDACTED BY AGENCY] being on his school bus and giving him the vapes.

[REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated that [REDACTED BY AGENCY] told him he was getting searched by his step-mother, that [REDACTED BY AGENCY] wanted him to hold on to them till Monday. I also asked [REDACTED BY AGENCY] if [REDACTED BY AGENCY] had told him what the vapes were, [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated yes, Delta 8.

When I spoke with [REDACTED BY AGENCY] she admitted to me that she had smoked the vape, that [REDACTED BY AGENCY] told her it was marijuana in it. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] also wrote me a statement that stated essentially the following. Today I hit a dab pen from a boy named [REDACTED BY AGENCY]. I made a joke at school and [REDACTED BY AGENCY] told me he had something and asked if I wanted to hit it.

I said sure, then I went in the restroom and used it three times. I gave it back to him in class. Later I got sick and threw up everywhere. I went to the office because it was abusive. I told them everything that happened. I am very sorry from my mistake, I understand that I did something stupid.

Student, Jacob Powell, statement was essentially the following. It was first lunch when [REDACTED BY AGENCY] approach me and asked if I wanted to hit his pen. I considered it with great skepticism but still agreed. We were in the bathroom when he handed it to me, I went into a stall and hit it once or twice before I was going to give it back. However an Officer came in to use the restroom and [REDACTED BY AGENCY] started talking with him.

They both walked out leaving me in possession of the dab pen. I begin texting [REDACTED BY AGENCY] with hopes of returning it because genuinely I did not want to have hit on me. As I told the VP (Assistant Principal) he did not have any influence over my decision. Frankly I don’t even enjoy talking to [REDACTED BY AGENCY] and will admit that I felt pressured into doing it.

Later [WITNESS #1] spoke with a [REDACTED BY AGENCY]. [WITNESS #1] stated [REDACTED BY AGENCY] admitted to him that he had gave [REDACTED BY AGENCY] the vapes/cartridges. [WITNESS #1] gave me [REDACTED BY AGENCY] statement that stated the following. This morning the bus I gave someone a cbd electrical pen and his name is [REDACTED BY AGENCY].

BWC activated.

[REDACTED BY AGENCY] possession, and Distribution, Jacob Powell, possession. Due to [REDACTED BY AGENCY] seeking help, I believe no charges filed per Georgia law 16-13-5- Medical Amnesty.

The parents of [REDACTED BY AGENCY] and Jacob were advised that the vape cartridge will be sent to the crime lab for analysis, and charges were pending the results of the crime lab.
