MADISON, FL (WTXL) -- Two students and a construction worker were arrested in a drug sweep earlier this month at Madison County High School.

Officers arrested Whigberto Ruiz of Crawfordville with possession of marijuana. Ruiz was a construction worker authorized to be on campus at the time, as part of a remodeling crew working on the school.
