Police say a student and a teacher's aide were caught selling brownies laced with marijuana at a school in Hartford.

According to WFSB-TV, police and medics were called to Global Communications Academy Wednesday after 17 students were believed to have eaten the brownies.

A teacher called police after seeing the brownies being sold and noticing the scent of marijuana.

The 17 students believed to have eaten the brownies were evaluated by medics, but none were taken to the hospital. All were high-school age.

Police say the student and teacher's aide have been suspended and could face charges, though none have been filed.
