Spalding High School students arrested

Following up on a phone call received Thursday, November 1, the Spalding County Sheriff’s Department and Spalding High School administrators conducted a day-long investigation that culminated with the arrest of five students on various drug and weapons charges.

Spalding High School principal Derrell Jeffcoat said, “We appreciated the phone tip made to the Sheriff’s Department. When we receive information about an illegal substance that might be on our campus, we will investigate. We want to feel as confident as we can that drugs or weapons of any sort are not on Spalding High School property. This includes any place on our campus – in vehicles, on visitors and of course with our students.

“We are obligated to keep our school as safe as possible. We thank those who cooperated with us yesterday especially the Spalding County Sheriff’s Department. “
