Law enforcement agencies came together last week and did a drug sweep at Dade County High School.

The Dade County Sheriff’s Department along with members from the Lookout Mountain Drug Task Force, members from DeKalb County Alabama K-9 Unit, and the Georgia Department of Corrections searched the high school and parking lot.

Dade County Sheriff Ray Cross said, “We are working hard to keep drugs out of our schools, and we are doing everything possible to keep our kids safe.”

Sheriff Cross also reported that nine different alerts from the K-9 units resulted in eight finds and four arrests.

Those arrested were Dylan Beckham, 18; David Case, 17; Dakota Stephens, 18; and Alexander Fulghum, 17. Beckham, Case and Fulghum were charged with possession of marijuana, less than one ounce. Stephens was charged with possession of marijuana, less than one ounce and probation violation, misdemeanor.

Dade High School principal Josh Ingle said, “Safety for our students is the number one priority.” He and assistant principals Dr. James Cantrell and Billy Broom assisted law enforcement with the sweep.
