A Grade 10 student at the Arellano University in Sampaloc, Manila was reportedly busted by his own teacher while he was smoking marijuana inside the school’s comfort room the other night.
The student, of Pandacan, Manila and whose name is being withheld for being a minor, is now in the custody of the Manila Police District -Station 4.
Teacher Mark John Peña told probers that he was walking near the comfort room at around 7 p.m. when he smelled the smoke coming out of the comfort room.
When he was in front of the door, out came the student and a check showed that no one else was inside the comfort room apart from the said student, so that Pena chased and confronted him.
It was during their conversation that Pena said he noticed a glass tube pipe being held by the student with marijuana fruiting tops inside, that he decided to bring the student to security which turned him over to the police.
Charges for violation of Republic Act 9165 or Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 have been filed against the student.
