Investigators believe a 51-year-old man hired high school students to tend his marijuana growing operation and paid them in marijuana. They also say marijuana was sold at the school through a network of student dealers.
Police raided the home of the 51-year-old man on Nov. 19 and arrested two more men Nov. 25 in raids on their homes. Officers seized 10 pounds of marijuana and more than $18,000 in cash.
Police said in statement Monday that most of those identified in the investigation are current and former West Linn High School students.
