Two 19-year-old Naperville men have been charged with attempting to sell marijuana on the property of Kennedy Junior High School in Lisle.
According to Lisle police and Naperville Unit District 203 officials, students reported the pair to the school resource officer, who found and arrested the men around 3:45 p.m. Monday near the school at 2929 Green Trails Drive.
Andrew Dunlop III, of the 5S600 block of Buttonwood Court, and Mindaugus Skurvydas, of the 2200 block of Grove Court, were released on bond after being charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Skurvydas also was charged with criminal trespass to state-supported property.
Police said the officer, after receiving a tip that the pair had approached a small group of students, located the two men in a nearby park and searched their vehicle. During the search, the officer found what he believed was cannabis and several pieces of drug paraphernalia.
Kennedy Principal Brian Valek praised the students for reporting the incident immediately.
"The actions of the students are commendable and illustrate the importance of quick communication to school officials," he said Tuesday. "It is important to reinforce with our students the proper response to make when they find themselves in any type of difficult situation."
