An East Alabama high school was place on lockdown Thursday as law enforcement officers of the Chambers County Sheriff's Department, Lanett Police Department, Opelika Police Department and Auburn Police Department, as well as Officers of the Fifth Judicial Circuit Drug Task Force, conducted a joint K-9 Search for illegal drugs.
While the officers searched Valley High School Thursday morning, their K-9 detectives sniffed out some unexpected items: A large amount of marijuana and an AK-47 rifle.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WBRC) - Wednesday, lawmakers in Washington, D.C. awarded a Congressional Gold Medal to the victims of the 1963 16th Street Baptist Church bombing. MOREAdditional Links Some say the award is bittersweet and long overdue for Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson and Cynthia Wesley. "Yes it is overdue. This whole commemoration is trying to right some wrongs both in terms of recognition, in terms of recognizing folks who had not been recognized in the past, correcting things that should've been corrected a long time ago," Rep. Terri Sewell said. Mayor William Bell flew to the capitol to be on hand for the vote and siblings of some of the girls watched the House discussion and vote from the gallery. If all goes according to plan, the girls will be awarded the medal posthumously and the families will have it in hand by the 50th anniversary of the bombing this September.

BOSTON (RNN) – With the second suspect in custody, authorities continue the work to uncover why bombs were set off at the Boston Marathon.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, MA, may be charged Monday with state and federal crimes related to the fatal bombing and subsequent manhunt. Federal officials told CNN and USA Today he has been communicating with investigators in writing but is unable to speak after sustaining a gunshot wound to his throat.
The suspect has been sedated and intubated, and he remains in serious but stable condition at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
Law enforcement took Tsarnaev into custody Friday following an extensive search, an area of Watertown, MA shut down and multiple shootouts. His brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed during the chase from police less than 24 hours prior to the arrest.
Police commissioner Ed Davis told CNN Monday evidence they found led him to believe the brothers planned another attack.
"The two suspects were armed with handguns at the scene of the shootout and there were multiple explosive devices," Davis said.
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick asked people to hold a moment of silence at 2:50 p.m. ET, the time the bombs ignited at the finish line of the marathon a week ago. Bells around the city will chime for one minute immediately after that.
Also Monday, CNN reported the FBI questioned Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2011 at the request of Russian officials. According to an FBI statement, the request was based on information he was a follower of radical Islam and prepared to leave the U.S. and travel to the region "to join unspecified underground groups."
Davis said Monday he did not have information regarding any international aspects of the case, but they were looking at it closely.
Davis also told CNN that Richard Donohue Jr., the transit police officer injured during the chase Friday, has improved.
"He was able to communicate through hand signals yesterday," Davis said.
The marathon finish line was still considered a closed crime scene Monday but could reopen in the next 24 to 48 hours.
Three people were killed and more than 180 were injured by two explosions within seconds of each other near the finish line of the annual Patriots Day race.
Law enforcement used video and photos taken from the site to identify the Tsarnaev brothers as suspects. Police found them Thursday, hours after the FBI released images of the two from the day of the marathon.
MIT police officer Sean Collier, 26, was killed during the ensuing getaway attempt. After Boston and surrounding towns were shut down for several hours, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found hiding in a boat in a Watertown backyard.

A manhunt is underway for Tamerlan's brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19.
Police have identified Tamerlan arnaev, 26, as the dead Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan studied at Bunker Hill Community College in Boston to become an engineer. He was a competitive boxer for a club named Team Lowell. Police have identified Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, as the dead Boston bombing suspect. He was killed in a dramatic firefight with police in nearby Watertown, Mass. A manhunt is underway for Tamerlan's brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19. The brothers had been living together on Norfolk Street in Cambridge. An uncle, Ruslan Tsarni of Montgomery Village, Md., told The Associated Press that the men lived together near Boston and have been in the United States for about a decade. They came from the Russian region near Chechnya, which has been plagued by an Islamic insurgency stemming from separatist wars. Tamerlan studied at Bunker Hill Community College in Boston to become an engineer. He was a competitive boxer for a club named Team Lowell and took a semester off from school to train for the National Golden Gloves competition in Salt Lake City, according to a photo essay titled "Will Box for Passport." In 2010, Tamerlan beat Southern New England's Brian Daniels in the heavyweight title bout. Tsarnaev also received the prestigious Rocky Marciano Trophy given to the New England heavyweight champ, the Lowell Sun reported. In the photo essay, Tamerlan says: "I don't have a single American friend, I don't understand them." According to the website spotcrime.com, Tamerlan was arrested for domestic violence in July 2009, after assaulting his girlfriend.
