HARTSELLE, Ala. – A Hartselle High School student was arrested at school Wednesday and charged with several drug-related charges.

Tobias Travian Bjorn Mitchell, 18, was arrested after a month-long investigation by Morgan County Drug Task Force into marijuana distribution in the city of Hartselle, according to Morgan County Sheriff Ana Franklin.

Franklin said Mitchell was not caught selling on school property, but the investigation revealed the drug distribution happened within three miles of a public school.

A search warrant at Mitchell’s home on Sunset St. revealed multiple bags of marijuana packaged for resale, along with drug sale paraphernalia, Franklin said. Agents also found 20 grams of cocaine packaged for resale and a handgun, she added.

Mitchell was charged with three counts of unlawful distribution of marijuana, unlawful possession of marijuana 1st, and possession with intent to distribute cocaine. He is in the Morgan County Jail on a $75,000 bond.
