High school student accused of trafficking Ecstasy, marijuana

SALMON CREEK, Wash. -- An 18-year-old high school student was arrested after deputies say he was trafficking marijuana and Ecstasy to students.

Trevor Jay Thomas, a senior at Skyview High School in Salmon Creek, was taken into custody following an undercover sting by detectives with the Clark-Vancouver Regional Task Force.

The sting followed a tip to investigators that Thomas was dealing the drugs out of his residence to local students, deputies said.

On Wednesday, detectives arranged an undercover purchase of drugs from him at the Salmon Creek Fred Meyer, according to a news release from the Clark County Sheriff's Office. During the sting, marijuana and Ecstasy were found in his Mercedes Benz C230.

Detectives also executed a search warrant at Thomas' residence in the 15200 block of Northwest 21st Avenue. They reportedly found more marijuana, Ecstasy, materials to package Ecstasy and about $12,000 in cash, which is believed to be from his drug deals, deputies said.

Thomas was booked in the Clark County Jail on suspicion of one count of delivery of a controlled substance. More charges are expected, the news release said.
