WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A 16-year-old girl has been arrested for allegedly having drugs and alcohol today at Ashley High School.

Investigators say Mikayla Ann Wright and three other students were found on campus but not it class. The students were taken to school administrators, who found a small vial containing a white powder and a mini bottle of liquor in Wright’s purse.

A New Hanover County Sheriff’s spokesman says Wright is charged with felony possession of cocaine, misdemeanor possession of alcohol and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. She was booked into the New Hanover County Jail under $10,000 secured bond.

When asked about the arrest, a school district spokeswoman told WWAY she could not speak to any specifics, but that the district has a zero-tolerance policy for drugs.

Perhaps the drugs and alcohol in her possession were NOT her’s … she was probably just “holding them for a friend.” LOL

I didn’t know my high school friend used drugs either. Should I say that same thing now after since he is dead.

Being a rather spunky 16 year old at the time, if my parent had beat me, I would have made him pay 10 fold and was quite capable of accomplishing this. Beat a 16 year old? Wow…a dark age transport? I always responded to the positive, something I rarely got a glimpse of. If she were my child, I would do everything possible to save her from dependency and negativity. Treatment and counseling to start with. And no, I’m not a liberal, nor do I use drugs or abuse alcohol…today.

Not as sure about cocaine, but Hoggard has a larger variety and quanity on prescription narcotics than CVS and Walgreens combined. However, only open for business M-F from 7:30 to 3:00. It is ashamed that the spokeswoman’s comment about “zero-tolerance” policy really is closer to a “don’t ask – don’t tell” policy. Keep the problem undercover and it therefore doesn’t exist.
