Two Hononegah high school students face drug charges after a lock-down at the school Tuesday morning. A code yellow was issued at 9 a.m. so all students had to be in their classroom. While the learning continued, 16 officers and 13 drug sniffing dogs hit the hallways and the parking lot.

Police uncovered marijuana, alcohol, and drug paraphernalia. A 16- and 17-year-old student were arrested and charged with possession of dope. They have since been released.
Hononegah Principal Judy Rigby says the search was an attempt to show Hononegah's students that drugs have *no* place in school. This is the fifth time in the last 20 years that the building has gone into a voluntary lockdown mode.
