March 7--  A student at Toombs County Middle School was arrested Tuesday, according to Lyons Police Chief Wesley Walker.

The chief says the juvenile was arrested after coming to school with a pocket knife, a powdered substance he allegedly tried to pass off as drugs and something described as an "inoperable device."

Later Tuesday two boys at the high school made what can be interpreted as disturbing remarks in today's environment and Wednesday morning some girls at the high school started rumors about a shooting.  No charges are being filed in those cases, however, School Superintendent Richard Smith says they will be handled in accordance with the school system's disciplinary handbook.
