Police Blotter: Three Pot Busts at Oxford High School, Vandalism at Great Oak

Police say two  juveniles were arrested this week for carrying small amounts of marijuana. Police are not releasing the students’ names because of their ages. The arrests come shortly after a third student was arrested last month and given an infraction (like a speeding ticket), which is what the revised state law calls for when someone possesses less than one half ounce of marijuana. Police say they have received no calls from parents or anyone else expressing concerns about a drug problem at the high school, though local police say they take these types of cases seriously.

A local woman was arrested on Monday after she punched her boyfriend several times in the parking lot of a local gas station and then drove away fast, police said.

Police received a call about the case at the and gas station at 357 Oxford Road. Just before they arrived to the station, they said they saw a woman drive past them at a high rate of speed in a 1989 Honda Accord.

Samantha Cirrincione, 18, of Oxford, was pulled over and charged with reckless driving. She told police the man she was hitting was her boyfriend. Cirrincione was also charged with disorderly conduct for the altercation.

She was released on a $500 non-surety bond and was expected to be arraigned Tuesday at Derby Superior Court. The outcome of her arraignment was not immediately available on Tuesday

It appears as if vandals have once again struck at .

Police say someone stomped on flower beds containing daffodils in front of the school and busted a sign on the property. The incident occurred sometime over the weekend.

Last week, , causing about $200 worth of damage.

Police are actively investigating both cases. Anyone with information is urged to call the Oxford Resident Trooper’s Office at 203.888.4353. All calls will be kept confidential.
