Valdosta - A random search at a South Georgia school leads to the arrests of 4 students.

Lowndes County investigators and drug dogs searched Valdosta High School Tuesday and found a small amount of marijuana and a shotgun in the students' vehicles.

Principal Tommy Craft says the drug search was strictly random and not based on suspicion. "I told the Board of Education when they interviewed me for this job that I had seen other schools do the random searches and it worked well, so this is something I planned on doing from the beginning," said Craft.

The students will most likely be suspended for the rest of the school year. Dr. Craft assures students that there will be more random drug searches throughout the year.
