The drug ring allegedly sold high-end marijuana to students in two school districts and raked in about $20,000 a month.

Police arrested the unnamed boy — he was 16 at the time he allegedly committed the crimes — after an undercover officer found six students or former students who were working for the alleged drug boss.

“The group supplied an overwhelming amount of marijuana in the Mason and King school districts,” local prosecutor David Fornshell told ABC News.
