Glenpool Police say they are investigating after a middle school student may have brought homemade marijuana brownies to school and shared them with classmates.

Police say a student brought the brownies from home, but it is not clear yet if marijuana was an ingredient. Police say a total of three or four students here at Glenpool Middle School may have been exposed.

Interim Police Chief Bart Harris says a student tipped a school administrator about what was going on. That administrator got school resource officers and police involved right away. 

"You hear it all the time: see something, say something. That doesn't matter if it's a weapon, or a drug substance of some type or seeing someone bullied," said Chief Harris.

Police say are not sure when the brownies were passed out. The school administration offered the following statement

“The middle school administration was notified today of a potential illegal substance brought to school by a student. The school’s SROs were immediately contacted. The situation was fully investigated, and the school is cooperating with local law enforcement.  Parents have been notified if their student was involved and necessary action has been taken to ensure the safety of all students.”

Ron Harris has three grandkids in the school district, two in middle school. He says he plans to take this opportunity to talk to them about drugs.

"You just don't expect this kind of thing to happen here. But it does, and so we'll deal with it and teach them what we know and teach them how to be safe."

What's left of the brownies will be sent to an OSBI lab to be tested for marijuana. Police say it could be months before Glenpool Police get test results back because this incident won't be high on OSBI's list of priorities. If a controlled substance is found in the brownies, the student who brought them to school could face criminal charges.
