Two charged in school drug raid

Sunbury Daily Item

SUNBURY PA — Two Shikellamy High School students have been charged with having marijuana and drug paraphernalia on school property.

Steven Naugle, 18, of Sunbury, has been charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of a small amount of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and disorderly conduct.

A 17-year-old Sunbury girl was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and disorderly conduct. Her name was not released because of her age.

The items were discovered May 17 during a search at the high school, the facts of which principal Terry Roden said were lost in subsequent news coverage.

"All I want to do is put the facts out there so that everybody knows what happened here," Mr. Roden said.

Of the high school’s 1,600 lockers — all of which were searched by Mr. Roden — dogs alerted him to the presence of illegal drugs 25 times.

Of those 25 alerts, five lockers were vacant, and no illegal drugs were found in the remaining 20.

Of almost 500 vehicles searched in all of the high school’s parking lots, a small amount of marijuana and a marijuana pipe were found in one and another pipe was found in a second car.

Two students were found to be in possession of illegal drugs out of Shikellamy High School’s 1,053, officials said.
