WINDER -- Eleven high school students are behind bars after a major undercover drug sting at their school.
Winder police say the students, ages 15 to 19, sold drugs to other students at Winder-Barrow High School.
The 11 students were arrested on campus Monday morning and they then being processed at the Barrow County Jail.
Police say instead of spending time in the classroom, theyâ€™ll be learning a hard lesson behind bars.
I live in neighboring Oconee county, and I've got a lot of friends and a couple old coworkers that go to Winder-Barrow. I heard about what happened in passing the other day at school, but when I noticed a headline on Digg I was suprised. Talk about an interesting new way to catch drug dealers... One thing is for sure though, the problem is just as bad right across the county line. Sad that these kids screwed up their chance at a normal future; hopefully those who weren't caught see it as a wake up call.
