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

The following information was supplied by the Oxford Resident Trooper's Office. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

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.

This is in response to the note (below) which Alex J. posted here. Yes, I emailed Alex J. Yes, I did say in the email that he seems like a well-spoken "dude," which Alex described in his response to me as inappropriate and unprofessional language. I'm sorry, "sir." I also asked if Alex would be interested in sharing his artistic talents - he has some - on a blog on this site (God forbid I offer a kid an opportunity.) Also, I did tell Alex it's inappropriate to call people names on the site, which I try to tell all commenters, and that it takes away from your argument, so please don't do it. And yes, I'm still waiting for you and whoever else says this is not factual information to simply explain what is wrong. Also, please be aware that I want people to have freedom of speech, however, that doesn't necessarily apply here since Patch/AOL is running the site and giving commenters like Alex an opportunity to share their comments. I'm much more lenient on commenters who use their real names, btw. Alex J 4 hours ago Oh and by the way the editor Paul doesn't like when you question his credibility even though several posts talk about the misinformation within this article. So to anyone thinking of challenging him, don't, he'll just remove the post because he cannot take any critisism. But he feels free to dish it out in return. It's funny how immature older people are, especially those who are continuously saying that they know whats best for us... WHEN YOU DON'T!

lol Alex, I hear ya... I am 47 YO and spell like a 3 year old... who cares! on the internet, its really not my priority #1 to spell everything perfectly and use correct grammer and sentence structure. if I was writing something with a bit more importance to it, yeah id be sure to spell everything correctly and make sure all my T's were crossed and my I's dotted. Heck, I have to, my wife is a professional Proof reader / Copy editor with a Masters Degree in English. lol

yeah, one time he said he was drinking coffee, I said, "Really? because it smells like hot cocoa" and he siad "WELL ITS NOT!!" And he waled off in a huff!! And this was after he told me my hair looked funny.... Grrrrrrrr He'll pay for this! lol,lol,lol,lol.... Seriously though Alex, we dont know whats "Best" for you, but we do know what will happen because we have been there before. So dont look at it as Adults telling you what to do, look at it as someone who has already been through it before, telling you what could / will happen and do with it what you will. Like a person on a bridge with a huge hole in it tries to warn the oncoming cars to stop but they think he's just a moron so they give him the finger and drive right into the hole and fall to their deaths. if only they had stopped when he warned them too.
