BONNERS FERRY, Idaho -

Bonners Ferry Police in cooperation with Bonners County Sheriff's Office conducted a random drug search at Bonners Ferry High School, where a K9 unit discovered a vehicle in the parking lot with marijuana and a deer rifle inside.

The vehicle belongs to an 18-year-old male student who faces charges of possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a firearm. Police believe that the deer rifle was not  brought to the school with malicious intent, but the school has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to firearms. 

This year alone, there have been three instances of drug possession in Bonners Ferry High School, and a number of other calls in Bonners County. 

Police Chief Robert Boone says there is a bad drug problem in Bonners Ferry and that it comes from Spokane. He also says the random drug searches will continue.
