VALPARAISO — Authorities in northwestern Indiana have charged a 16-year-old boy with dealing marijuana on school property, saying he sold marijuana-laced brownies to fellow students.

Police say officers responding to a tip last week found a plastic container and metal baking pan with brownie crumbs in a locker at Valparaiso High School that smelled of marijuana.

The Times of Munster reports that police say the boy admitted to putting a half ounce of marijuana in the brownies and either selling them or giving them away. Police reported finding two $20 bills in his pocket that the boy admitted came from selling the brownies.

Police say several students were questioned, but searches revealed nothing more at the 2,100-student school.
