VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

A Skyview High School senior is accused of trafficking marijuana and ecstasy to local students.

The Clark-Vancouver Regional Drug Task Force arrested Trevor Thomas, 18, on one count of delivery of a controlled substance.

On Wednesday, task force detectives arranged to buy marijuana and ecstasy from Thomas, officials said. Court documents said the deal was to pay for $260 worth of ecstasy and $570 worth of marijuana.

According to detectives, Thomas drove from his home to the Fred Meyer shopping center on NE Tenney Road to deliver the drugs while he was under surveillance.

He was taken into custody by task force detectives in the parking lot of the shopping center.

Marijuana and ecstasy was located in his car, investigators said.

Shortly after Thomas' arrest, task force detectives executed a search warrant at his home on NW 21st Avenue, near NW 153rd Street.

During this search, they recovered more marijuana, ecstasy, materials to package ecstasy and approximately $12,000 in cash that is believed to be proceeds from drugs sales, officials told FOX 12.

"In addition to the drug evidence, we also recovered records detailing prior drug transactions with a variety of individuals," said task force commander Mike Cooke. 

"We will provide those records to the school resource officer assigned to Skyview High School so that any ongoing issues with specific students can be addressed."

"Most everyone knows what marijuana is, however many parents don't understand what ecstasy is," said Commander Cooke. 

"Ecstasy, or MDMA, is a powerful hallucinogenic drug that often contains other substances such as methamphetamine."

It's anticipated additional charges will be filed against him based on evidence found at his home, investigators said.
