Two local students arrested on drug charges following school search


Two local high school students were this week arrested following a search that uncovered narcotics on school grounds.

According to a press release issued by Spalding County Sheriff Darrell Dix, members of the SCSO Special conducted a K9 search of Spalding High School located at 433 Wilson Road.

This preplanned search was coordinated by a joint effort between the SCSO and the Griffin Spalding County School System, and was performed with the assistance of the Griffin Police Department and school system staff.

The building and grounds of Spalding High School was searched by K9s and officers from the GPD’s C.A.G.E. unit and SCSO agents.

As a result of the search, two students were arrested and charged with possession of less than an ounce of marijuana. No further information is available regarding the arrests.

“I would like to thank Principal Lindy Pruitt and her staff for assisting us with the search of the school. We realize that this type of operation is time consuming and impacts both students and staff. This joint effort with the School System is intended to provide a safe learning environment for students and staff. By working together during the planning process we minimized the interruptions and were able to return the students and teachers to the classroom in a timely manner.”
