VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - A traffic stop at Valdosta High School led to the discovery of nearly one-hundred grams of marijuana and a stolen rifle.
These discoveries landed three men behind bars today.
Police arrested Katuma Gordon, 20; Tony Duncan, 20; and Darius Norwood, 21, after they arrived at Valdosta High School to pick up a student. The guard at the gate alerted the school resource officer after smelling marijuana coming from their SUV.
Police found 90 grams of marijuana on Gordon, and a rifle in the rear of the car.
"We located an SKS rifle. That rifle had magazines with it and also had ammunition with it," says Commander Brian Childress of the Valdosta Police Department. "At this point of our investigation, we have no reason to believe that these individuals were going to do anything at the school with the rifle."
That weapon was later identified as one that was stolen in a home invasion in Lowndes County last week. Bringing both firearms and illegal drugs onto school campuses are felonies.
