A 17-year-old Copperas Cove High School student has been arrested and is facing charges after selling brownies laced with marijuana, police said.

Destiny Ramsey was arrested Tuesday on a warrant alleging she sold three marijuana brownies to a fellow student in October. The student then gave one of the brownies to another student, who ate the brownie and experienced a “medical issue” in the nurse’s office, according to an affidavit.

A school administrator and the investigating officer found one of the brownies packaged in the bag of the student who purchased them from Ramsey. Weighing in at 77.9 grams, about 0.17 pounds, the brownie was sent to the Austin Crime Lab, where it tested positive for the presence of THC.

Ramsey is charged with the delivery of marijuana five pounds or less but more than one-fourth of an ounce in a drug-free zone, a felony that could result in up to two years in state jail.

In 2014, a similar case in Round Rock involved a 19-year-old, Jacob Lavoro, who made national news when he was facing up to life in prison for possessing pot brownies. Lavoro agreed to the plea in exchange for a sentence of seven years of probation. | 254-501-7553
