HAILEY • A student at Silver Creek High School was arrested Thursday afternoon for violating his probation, carrying synthetic drugs and possessing a weapon on school property.
Colton Turner, 18, of Ketchum, was dismissed from school after it was found he was using the school’s computer network to access “inappropriate” content from the Internet, school spokeswoman Heather Crocker said.
When police arrived, they found Turner in possession of synthetic marijuana — known as Spice — and a flare gun, Assistant Chief of Police Dave Stellers said. Turner had been using the Internet to look up information on how to build bombs and blow up buildings, Stellers said.
One of the conditions of Turner’s probation was that he had to be in school. Once he was kicked out, he was in violation, Stellers said. The original charge was for possession of drug paraphernalia, he said.
Turner was booked into the Blaine County Jail.
