INDIANAPOLIS - A 16-year-old Indianapolis Public Schools student has been arrested after he was caught with $300 worth of crack cocaine ready to sell, the district said.
The boy arrived late to school Tuesday at Coleman Academy at 1740 E 30th St, which has a policy that all late students are to be searched.
That's when 15 small baggies of crack cocaine, apparently packaged to sell, were found in the student's coat, the district said.
The boy was arrested on preliminary charges of cocaine possession and dealing cocaine.
