YUKON, Okla. (AP) -- Three Yukon High School students were arrested on campus Tuesday morning on drug complaints.

Yukon police say 18-year-old Gregory Allen Smith and two high school juniors were taken to the Oklahoma County jail on complaints of distributing marijuana. The names of the two juniors were not released because they're juveniles.

Police Chief Ike Shirley says an undercover officer posing as a student bought marijuana from the students at an undisclosed location in Oklahoma County and away from school property.

Shirley says police have taken a "zero tolerance" stance toward drugs since two students overdosed last year, including one who died.
