WEST LINN, Ore. (AP) — Police say they have busted a pot ring linked to West Linn High School.
Investigators believe a 51-year-old man hired high school students to tend his marijuana growing operation and paid them in marijuana. They also say marijuana was sold at the school through a network of student dealers.
Police raided the home of the 51-year-old man on Nov. 19 and arrested two more men Nov. 25 in raids on their homes. Officers seized 10 pounds of marijuana and more than $18,000 in cash.
Police said in statement Monday that most of those identified in the investigation are current and former West Linn High School students.
West Linn is located due south of Portland and east of Tigard.
