Subject: Truancy Initiative at Antioch High School

Date: Tuesday 3/4/2008 Precinct: Hermitage Detail: A-Shift, Flex Unit Major Event Information Today, the Hermitage Flex A-Team conducted a truancy initiative at Antioch High School (1900 Hobson Pk). The area surrounding this high school has had an unreasonably high number of residential burglaries and other theft offenses in recent weeks. Our goal was to impact crime in the region which is possibly being committed by truant juveniles. Overall, 8 subjects were charged with 11 misdemeanor and felony offenses. A breakdown of the charges is as follows: (4) Loitering During School Hours, (1) Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor, (3) D/L Required, (1) Trespassing, (1) Felony Possession of Drugs within 1000 feet of a school, (1) Drug Paraphernalia, and The best arrest of the day came when Officers Ward and Christie made a stop on a subject suspected of loitering. The juvenile was stopped after he was seen driving around the parking lots of Antioch HS while school was in session. During the stop, the odor of marijuana was emanating from inside the car. A probable cause search yielded approximately 33 grams (just over an ounce) of marijuana as well as some digital scales. As it turns out the defendant has been expelled from a couple of high schools and had no business being on school property. Commander Michelle Richter Hermitage Precinct 880-1776
