Police pulled a Traverse City teen out of class after officers found marijuana during a school drug sweep.

Drug dogs from Grand Traverse, Kalkaska and Benzie counties scoured Traverse City Central High School on Wednesday in a search for illegal drugs. Police eventually arrested a student, 17, after they said the student possessed about two grams of marijuana.

Police asked the county prosecutor to charge the student with marijuana possession. No criminal charges were filed by Thursday afternoon.

School administrators contacted local police and requested the drug sweep.

"Usually the schools will request it once or twice a year," said city police Capt. Steve Morgan. "We never go unless the school officials request us. We've probably been to all the area secondary schools at one time or another."

Dogs did not detect any other drugs in the school, Morgan said.
