Auburn police this afternoon arrested a man suspected of conducting a version of an after-school bake sale featuring marijuana-laced brownies.
Police went to School Park Reserve at 55 College Lane about 1 p.m. after being advised by Placer High School officials of students possibly smoking marijuana, according to a department news release.
During the investigation, Officer Ian Ackard contacted John William Brazel, 18, of Auburn, and subsequently arrested him for suspicion of possessing marijuana for sale. Police said Brazel was selling marijuana in leaf form and mixed in brownies. They said Brazel also appeared to be under the influence of marijuana.
He was booked into Placer County Jail.
