GREENWOOD COUNTY, SC (WYFF)
A 12-year-old girl was caught hiding marijuana, which was provided by her mother, in the ceiling of a middle school restroom, according to the Greenwood County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies were called to North Side Middle School on Friday after a student told the principal she saw a girl put a baggie containing marijuana in the drop ceiling of the girls' restroom in the seventh-grade hallway.
The principal checked surveillance camera video, and saw the 12-year-old girl go into the restroom at the time the student said she saw the marijuana being hidden.
The 12-year-old told investigators that she lives with her grandmother, but she meets her mother at some nearby apartments. The girl said her mother gives her marijuana that she then distributes at school. The girl told deputies that she doesn't know where her mother lives.
The marijuana was seized and the 12-year-old was charged with possession of marijuana.
There was no word of any charges against the girl's mother.
