Police arrested a 16-year-old after he allegedly brought marijuana-laced chocolate chip cookies to sell at a Hercules school on Tuesday, police said today.

Police said a school resource officer received information around 1:40 in the afternoon that a student had pot cookies for sale.

The officer contacted the student and found a Tupperware container in his possession with 17 individually wrapped chocolate chip cookies inside, police said.

The officer found another cookie inside the teenager’s pocket and $44 in cash, police said.

Detective Connie Van Putten said the officer conducted a “presumptive test” with a field kit that the officers carry to test for the presence of THC, a chemical found in marijuana.

The cookie tested positive, police said.

The officer arrested the juvenile on suspicion of possessing marijuana for sale and child endangerment charges. He was transported and booked in the John A. Davis Juvenile Hall, police said.

Police said the officer was not able to determine if any cookies had actually been sold to any students.

There were no immediate reports of illness, but the school is notifying parents of the incident, police said.
