Posted

Barrington police charged a 16-year-old Barrington boy with possession of one ounce or less of marijuana — child under 17 years old, following an incident at Barrington High School on Tuesday, Nov. 19.

The school resource officer was checking the restrooms for illegal vaping or smoking activity at about 2:50 p.m., when he allegedly found one teenage boy vaping with a e-cig that contained THC oil.

Police said there were three boys inside the restroom, but only one was vaping at the time the officer entered. Police said all three teenagers faced disciplinary actions from school officials.
