No Drugs Found In Tuesday Morning Search At HCHS

No drugs were found when Halifax County High School was locked down Tuesday morning for a drug search, according to Special Agent Mark Campbell, Halifax/South Boston Regional Narcotics and Gang Task Force coordinator.

Task force members, along with Sheriff Stanley Noblin and South Boston Chief Jim Binner, began searching the hallways of the school with six drug dogs at 10 a.m., Campbell said. The sheriff’s office furnished two of the dogs, one was from the South Boston Police Department, and the other three were Virginia State Police drug dogs.

The search at the school ended at 11:15 a.m., and regular classes resumed, Campbell said. In addition to halls and lockers, the drug dogs searched the student parking lot.
