Campus police charged two students after conducting random searches on four Bibb County schools. 

A 17-year-old male student at Southwest High School was charged with possession of marijuana on school grounds. He had less than an ounce.

A 16-year-old female Northeast student was charged with possession of a weapon on school grounds. Officers found a razor in her purse. 

The male was transported to the Bibb County jail, and the female was scheduled for an appearance in juvenile court.

Nothing was found at Rutland High School or Westside High School, the other two schools officers searched Friday. 

The searches, which are part of Operation Enhance School Safety, began earlier this month after Chief Russell Bentley rejoined the Bibb County Campus Police.
