A 14-year-old juvenile was allegedly found to be in possession of a marijuana smoking pipe, a pill bottle containing a controlled substance and a piece of straw that the juvenile admitted to be used to snort crushed pills.

As a result, the juvenile was taken into custody and charged with three counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.
