n apple is not just for the teacher at high schools these days.
Police said they found one at a school in Los Lagos de Heredia that was used by a marijuana smoker to avoid burning the lips.
The apple had a hole bored through it that did not appear to have been made by a worm.
The discovery was during another police search of local schools. They also reported Tuesday on a search of a Santa Ana school.
Marijuana turned up in both locations. The searches were enhanced by the presence of trained dogs.
In Heredia, police found pouches of marijuana, a half-smoked cigarette and paraphernalia.
In Santa Ana they found some marijuana that was discarded by students when they saw police arriving, they said.
