WHITEVILLE, N.C. (WECT) - Two students of Southeastern Community College were arrested on drug charges after a joint effort from Columbus County Sheriff’s Office and SCC Campus Police led to finding marijuana in their cars.

SCC Campus Police contacted the CCSO to utilize a K-9 to conduct free air-sniff investigations of vehicles parked on the campus on Tuesday, October 4. The K-9 named Gunny gave positive alerts on students 20-year-old Alexis Sntasysia-Dexire Hall of Whiteville and Andrea Samantha Jackson’s vehicles.
