Police probe evidence handling at school

The Marion County Sheriff's Department is investigating whether Washington Township school police broke the law by maintaining
their own unofficial property room to collect evidence. Investigators say Washington Township police officers seized drugs
and drug-related evidence from students, then stored it in an unregulated property room on the North Central High School campus.
Marion County Sheriff Frank Anderson could decide to discipline the special deputies or even revoke their powers, which would
leave Washington Township schools patrolled by security guards without police authority. Fox59 will have more at 4 p.m.
