WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

A Wichita Falls teen was arrested Wednesday for a drug-related crime that is alleged to have occurred in August 2017.

On August 25, 2017, an officer was dispatched to Hirschi High School in reference to a student being in possession of marijuana cookies. 

According to the arrest warrant, a teacher was given a tip that Marc-Antonio Garcia, 17, was selling marijuana cookies at school. 

The teacher said she saw Garcia holding a clear plastic bag with golden colored cookies in it. The teacher said Garcia was talking to two other students and each of them had money in their hands. 

The teacher approached Garcia and told him to go to the office at which time he tried to give the bag to his sister, according to the arrest report. 

The teacher told Garcia the bag of cookies was staying with him. When they arrived at the office, the teacher opened the bag and could smell an odor of marijuana. 

When officers arrived, the cookies were weighed at 108 grams and packaged to be turned into the WFPD property room drop-box. 

Garcia was released pending test results. On August 30, 2017, the suspected narcotics were sent to the DPS laboratory in Abilene. 

On March 28, 2018, the lab sent back results indicating the suspected narcotics contained Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. A warrant for Possession of a Controlled Substance PG 2 in a Drug-Free Zone was then issued for Garcia on Wednesday, April 18.

As of Thursday afternoon, Garcia is no longer in the Wichita Co. Jail.
