Curiosity killed the cat

1:25 p.m., 1400 block of Rymfire Drive, Palm Coast

No charges filed. A school resource officer was involved when a student brought gummies to school — CBD gummies, that is.

Three students were sent to the nurse’s office for an exam and two will face in-school discipline for the incident. Since both children were cooperative, no charges were filed, according to the incident report.

An 11-year-old student bought a pack of four CBD gummies off of a website — without his parents’ knowledge — with a Visa gift card. He told the deputy he was curious and wanted to try it out, the incident report said. He brought the gummies to school, ate one, gave two to his friend and threw the final gummy in the trash.

His friend said the 11-year-old did tell him there was CBD in the gummies, but he asked for two anyway, the report said. The second boy said he ate one and put the other in his lunch bag, the report said. He turned the remaining gummy over to the school resource officer.

By the time the resource officer came down to the office, the boy who bought the gummies was “visibly shaken” and crying, the report said.

A third student claimed the 11-year-old gave him a “white substance,” though administrators could not confirm or deny the claim, the report said. The third boy was also sent to the nurse for an exam just in case and all the students’ parents were contacted.

Heart-breaking arrest

11:45 p.m., 100 block of Palm Harbor Parkway, Palm Coast

Possession with intent to distribute. A man found in possession of marijuana and LSD was dumped during his arrest.

Flagler County Sheriff’s Office deputies were patrolling the area when they found two vehicles parked next to each other in a parking lot; the car was empty, but the truck had a man and woman inside and smelled of marijuana, according to the arrest report.

The two were removed from the truck, which was searched. Deputies found almost $1,200 in cash, Narcan, THC vape pens, 173 grams of marijuana, 150 grams of THC oil, 1.10 grams of LSD and 52 grams of an “unidentified crystalline substance,” the report said.

The woman told the FCSO deputy that before he interrupted them, she had only been in the truck for a short time — she had been trying to break up with the man, the report said.

The man was placed under arrest for possession with intent to distribute, among several drug-related charges, and taken to the county jail.
