BELLE CHASSE, LA (WVUE) - Called to the principal's office to discuss an unrelated disciplinary issue, police say the 17-year-old high school student was noticeably nervous.

Raising suspicions of school administrators, a Belle Chasse High School student was arrested on drug possession and distribution charges.

Trey Millian, 17, was arrested on September 25 and booked on multiple drug charges.

Following a meeting in the school's office, school administrators tell police that the student requested to retrieve a book bag from his locker, which raised the suspicion of school administrators.

Millian was then escorted to his locker by school officials. Police say upon retrieving the book bag, the student attempted to flee.

A search of Millian's book bag revealed 15 individual bags of marijuana, cigars, rolling papers and cash, school officials tell police. Police were notified.

Officers state that the suspect admitted to selling marijuana to fellow students. He was arrested on intent to distribute marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was jailed and released on a $22,500 bond.

The Plaquemines Parish Sheriff's Office and Louisiana State Police conducted a school-wide K-9 drug detector search of the campus on Thursday. Nothing was found.
