Raid At High School Yields Some Pot Seeds

THURSDAY, OCT. 10, 1996

State and local police staged a surprise raid on a high school Wednesday, using drug-sniffing dogs to search lockers and vehicles for 45 minutes as school officials kept students inside classrooms.

The search at York High School turned up a few marijuana seeds, ashes and empty drug-related containers in four cars, as well as one small concealed weapon that school officials said was neither a gun nor a knife.

School officials defended the search, especially after a student died after using drugs last year.

But the executive director of the Nebraska chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union said the message being sent to students is that they have no personal rights.
