Drug Sweep at Selma City Schools

Police officers with dogs swept buildings throughout the Selma City School System on Thursday in search of drugs and guns. They cleared the campus with a good report, but the district attorney is telling students to get used to the sweeps.

For weeks K-9 teams combed the halls and found disturbing evidence of a disrupted learning environment.

"Last week we had a student bring a gun to school," said District Attorney Michael Jackson.

Thursday there were only false alarms.

Jackson says the students tell him they realize there's a gang problem and that it needs to stop.

The problem is real and until it's solved the district attorney's office says they will continue to search lockers.

The district attorney's office says students should expect the drug sweeps several times a semester.
