Security Checks at Lansing Schools

The search turned up three potentially dangerous weapons including one three-inch knife and two smaller knife-like weapons. Officials say the students carrying those weapons might be suspended or expelled.

While some students say they felt the search was invasive, school officials say random checks are necessary to stop weapons from making their way into the schools.

Last week, authorities searched students at Lansing's Hill school. They say numerous students dropped weapons outside the school doors to avoid getting in trouble when they went through security.
