Meth Found at Billings Middle School, Four Suspended

By Beacon Staff

BILLINGS – Four students at a Billings middle school have been placed on emergency suspension after methamphetamines were found in the boys’ bathroom.

Castle Rock Middle School Principal Shaun Harrington says the drugs were discovered Monday when a student told school officials that another student was showing off small baggies of drugs.

Harrington sent a letter to parents Tuesday saying it appeared one boy brought five baggies of powder to school and that another boy and two girls tried to protect him from being caught with them. Harrington says two of the small baggies were flushed down the toilet and the three that were recovered tested positive for methamphetamine.

Two boys and two girls were placed on emergency suspension pending administrative meetings. They also face legal consequences.
