2 adults face charges after child tries to sell marijuana

DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) – Two adults face charges after a child tries to sell marijuana at a Dothan elementary school.

The Dothan Eagle reports 29-year-old Larenta Dawkins and 27-year-old Brittaney Lee were arrested Tuesday. Dawkins faces charges of unlawful possession of a controlled substance, first-degree possession of marijuana and four counts of chemical endangerment of a child. Lee faces four counts of chemical endangerment of a child.

Police Capt. Will Benny says a search warrant resulted after a teacher allegedly witnessed a student trying to sell marijuana to another student. Benny said the student told investigators he had brought the marijuana from home.

Benny declined to say how old the student is or what school he attends.

Dothan City School Superintendent Chuck Ledbetter said the student has been recommended for expulsion.
