GREAT FALLS - Blake Darrell Ish has been accused of arranging a drug deal between middle school students.
Ish, 21 years old, faces four charges for reportedly giving marijuana to an underage relative.
Court documents say Ish was well aware that his relative planned to sell the drugs to a friend.
Police say that he picked up the friend and the drug deal happened in his car, just next to an elementary school.
The investigation started after marijuana and a pipe were found in the locker of a student at East Middle School back in April.
A search warrant was obtained for Ish's vehicle and residence; inside his home, authorities found a baggie of marijuana, a glass pipe, and a type of scale commonly used by drug dealers.
After being read his rights, Ish admitted that the items were his.
Court documents also state that Ish's 3-year old daughter was present in the home.
Ish's charges include criminal distribution of dangerous drugs (felony), criminal possession of dangerous drugs (felony), criminal possession of drug paraphernalia (misdemeanor), and endangering the welfare of a child (misdemeanor).
