An 18-year-old Skyview High School student was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of trafficking marijuana and ecstasy to other students.

Trevor Jay Thomas, a senior at the school, was allegedly trafficking the drugs at his residence, 15215 N.W. 21st Ave.

Detectives from the Clark-Vancouver Regional Drug Task Force arranged to purchase drugs from Thomas on Wednesday. Thomas then drove from his residence to Fred Meyer, 800 N.E. Tenney Road , to deliver the drugs and was taken into custody, according to Cmdr. Mike Cooke. Marijuana and ecstasy were found in his car, a 2006 Mercedes Benz C230.

Detectives served a search warrant at his residence and found additional drugs, packaging material and $12,000 in cash.

"In addition to the drug evidence, we also recovered records detailing prior drug transactions with a variety of individuals," Cooke said in a press release. "We will provide those records to the school resource officer assigned to Skyview High School so that any ongoing issues with specific students can be addressed."

Thomas was arrested on suspicion of one count of delivery of a controlled substance, but Cooke said that additional charges will be filed based on the evidence found at the residence.
