WISCASSET, Maine (AP) - A 14-year-old Wiscasset High School student is facing drug trafficking charges after he was allegedly caught in school with an assortment of nine different prescription medications for sale.

The drugs, including Oxycontin and Vicodin, were placed in plastic bags and stuffed inside a Pringles can in his backpack.

Police say there were a total of 163 pills and the plastic bags had suggested prices written on them, from $3 to $25 per pill.

Police say school staff was tipped off by the boy’s father, who said his son may have stolen the medications from a family member.

The boy’s backpack was searched on school grounds.

The boy is scheduled to be arraigned April 28.
