HCHS locked down for drug search

SoVaNow.com / April 07, 2009
Law enforcement officials conducted a lockdown today at Halifax County High School from 11:49 a.m. to 12:18 p.m. as a result of a tip received by the Southside Drug Task Force from a confidential informant, said Deputy Superintendent of Schools Larry Clark.

The building was searched by officers with the Virginia State Police, Halifax County Sheriff’s Office and the South Boston Police Department, said Clark. Following the search students were returned to class at 12:18. Any substances that were confiscated were taken into custody by the authorities, Clark said.

No charges or petitions have been filed thus far, he added.

“It was about drugs, not about a bomb scare or anything like that,” said Clark.

THE HIGH SCHOOL NEEDS TO HAVE MORE DRUG SEARCHES, AND STUDENTS SHOULD BE DRUG TESTED.

This was a waste of time. What about the lost class time? It should be made legal and then taxed!
