Update June 12 2012: Fairfax County Court records now show a "nolle prosequi," indicating the county decided not to prosecute Medwedeff for either of the charges.
Original Feb 8 2011: An 18-year-old James Madison High School student was arrested Saturday and charged with two counts of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.
Cameron Scott Medwedeff, 18, of Windover Avenue,was stopped on Saturday by Vienna Police Sgt. Tom Taylor in the 200 block of Maple Avenue. As Taylor approached the vehicle he detected marijuana, according to Vienna Police, and after further investigation, he found four ounces of marijuana in the trunk.
Vienna Police said Taylor later received a search warrant for Medwedeff's home, where he found drug paraphernalia and an additional 11 ounces of marijuana.
Medwedeff was taken to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center, where he was held on $7,500 bond for each of the two charges brought against him. Attempts to call the center to confirm if Medwedeff was still held there were unsuccessful.
Vienna Police Officer Bill Murray said he does not recall the last time police arrested a Madison student for possession with the intent to distribute. He said the department is "constantly in contact" with the school and its resource officer, and prepares reports to the school for all arrested students.
