Three Wood River High School students are facing marijuana or tobacco possession charges after local law enforcement officers used a dog to sniff cars for drugs in the school parking lot.

Blaine County Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Jay Davis said officers descended on the parking lot Friday morning at the request of school officials.

The drug-sniffing dog identified three suspect vehicles, he said. School authorities then escorted the suspect students to the parking lot, where they allowed searches of their vehicles, he said.

Davis declined to release the names of the students, but said a 17-year-old Ketchum boy and a 16-year-old Hailey girl will be charged with possession of marijuana. A 16-year-old Sun Valley boy will be charged with possession of tobacco, he said.

Davis said Sun Valley, Hailey, Bellevue and Ketchum police assisted with the parking lot search.

"We do this a couple of times a year, both with lockers and cars," Davis said.
