Rural Communities Following Lead of Large Cities in Efforts to Work With Federal Agencies

YADKINVILLE - The Yadkinville police officer had a hunch about the comings and goings from the parking lot at the Days Inn motel.

First, a woman got out of a Jeep Liberty and into a Dodge Durango. Then, a group of men outside the hotel got in the Jeep and left. When they returned, they switched vehicles again and drove away.

The officer called for backup from Yadkin County's drug-interdiction team. And with that call local officers also got help with surveillance from the federal Drug Enforcement Agency's El Paso Intelligence Center. According to a search warrant, the night's journeys had just begun. The Durango made stops in Hamptonville, North Wilkesboro, a small Wilkes County community called Hayes and Winston-Salem before returning to a house in Hamptonville.

YADKINVILLE -- The Yadkin County Sheriff's Office has hired enough deputies to staff the DARE program next school year.

Deputies who administer DARE, an anti-drug program, said that it was dropped this year mostly because of a shortage in school resource officers. "We were short one school resource officer at the start of the year. We had a couple of officers resign the middle of the school year," sheriff's Lt. Richard Nixon said.

Those positions are now filled. There are four school resource officers who work in Yadkin's eight elementary schools, and one officer is assigned to each of the two high schools.

Regarded As Trusted Member Of Team Of 8, He Is Charged With Recruiting To Sell Drugs

The arrest of an Alleghany County sheriff's deputy this week on federal charges that he recruited two people to sell drugs seized during investigations has left the small sheriff's office downcast but relieved, a spokeswoman said yesterday.

The deputy, Ricky James Lyall, 33, of 1144 Prathers Creek Church Road in Laurel Springs, was arrested Tuesday on eight drug-related offenses, including conspiracy to possess drugs with intent to distribute, possession with intent to distribute, making a false statement to a federal law-enforcement agent, and six counts of extortion.

School Board Worries About Rights and Costs

The Surry County school board has put on hold its discussion of a possible drug-testing program for student athletes and others involved in extracurricular activities.

School officials say that the likelihood of such a program acting as a deterrent does not outweigh the risk that students' rights could be violated.

"I'm not sure it's our mission," said Billy Sawyers, an assistant superintendent, at a board meeting Monday night.

Board member Bobby Hanes said he felt uncomfortable targeting a specific group of students and said that the cost of the program, which had been estimated to be as much as $8,000 a year, was too great.
