A spokesperson for Greenwood 50 school district said students are facing disciplinary action after an incident on Friday morning.

The district said an administrator smelled a suspicious odor from a student and, after an investigation, determined three students had smoked marijuana in a car before coming to school.

School administration and law enforcement searched a student's vehicle and found marijuana, a knife, a BB gun and BB gun ammo, the district said.

The student whose vehicle contained the items was detained and is facing a charge from law enforcement. All students involved are being disciplined the district said.
