ROOTSTOWN, Ohio-- An investigation into two overdoses at a Portage County high school led to three arrests this week.

The Portage County Drug Task Force's investigation started about three weeks ago following two overdoses on Xanax at Rootstown High School.

The task force said on Monday they searched a house on state Route 44, where they found cash, an assault rifle, marijuana and shipping boxes. They arrested 19-year-old Tarren R. Lowell on charges of trafficking drugs in the vicinity of a school and possession of criminal tools.

The next day, agents arrested Madison Schlagel and Jason L. Sadler, both 18, at Rootstown High School. They were charged with two counts of corrupting another with drugs.

The Portage County Drug Task is still trying to locate the source of several pounds of marijuana from California.
