VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Lowndes County school resource officers are spending a lot of time investigating whether students are attending school legally.

So far this year, they've gone out to verify 281 addresses.

They investigate any time they get a tip that someone may be lying about where they live to get into Lowndes County schools.

They made their first arrests for falsifying documents Monday at Lowndes High School.

"If someone brings a false document his responsibility is to go out to that address and verify that child is sleeping at that house," said Lowndes County School Resource Officer Sgt. Mike Adams.

41-year old Elizabeth Williams and 35-year old Abigail Hunter are charged with providing false statements.

Investigators say the women tried to get three teenagers into Lowndes High School who didn't belong there.

Both women bonded out of the Lowndes County Jail.
