A TEENAGER has been arrested after police investigated reports of senior pupils experimenting with drugs outwith school premises in Inverness.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Following a report expressing concerns about senior pupils on study leave at Millburn Academy seeking to experiment with controlled drugs outwith school premises, enquiries by officers with the support of school management have led to an 18-year-old male being arrested and reported to the Procurator Fiscal.

“Police and Millburn Academy would like to reinforce safety messages around the health risks associated with trying controlled drugs including suspected legal highs and would wish to reassure parents of pupils attending school that officers will robustly deal with those individuals who choose to engage in supply activity.”

If anyone has any information regarding drug related activity, they are urged to contact Police on 101.
