Oroville, CA- On Friday, April 5, 2019, at approximately 12:40 p.m., Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) School Resource Officer (SRO) Jesse Nicholaw was on patrol in the area of Las Plumas High School in Oroville. Deputy Nicholaw located a vehicle parked in the staff campus parking lot matching the description of one that had been reported to school staff as being associated with the sales of edible gummy bears containing concentrated marijuana to students at Las Plumas High School. Deputy Nicholaw conducted a traffic stop, the driver was identified as Jacob Murray, age 20 of Oroville. During a search of the vehicle, Deputy Nicholaw located a dozen individually wrapped gummy bears containing concentrated marijuana. The labeling on the individual gummies was consistent with drugs packaged for sale at a marijuana dispensary. Next to the gummies were several denominations of loose crumpled bills, which is often consistent with the sales of narcotics. Murray was placed under arrest and charged with the sales of concentrated marijuana to a minor, a felony. He was booked into the Butte County Jail with bail set at $20,000.
The investigation is ongoing, and it is believed Murray may have been selling narcotics to other juveniles in the Oroville area. Anyone with information that may be related to this case is asked to contact SRO Jesse Nicholaw at (530) 538-7321. We would like to thank staff at Las Plumas High School for working so closely with the Butte County Sheriff’s Office and our School Resource Officer.
