VALLEY, AL (WTVM) -

A 16-year-old Valley High School student is in serious trouble after police found an AK-47 rifle, a loaded magazine and marijuana in the student's car.

The weapon and drugs were found during a K-9 search for illegal drugs at the school.

The juvenile was transported to the Lee County Youth Detention Center and is charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and possession of a deadly weapon on school grounds.

The surprise raid put school on lockdown, which became an unsettling afternoon for students. 

"I was sitting in the classroom and out principal came over the loud speaker and said we're on lockdown so we had to stay in the room for about an hour and 30 minutes after we found out it was drug dogs that came and got us out of class.. I mean it was scary," said A.J. Hadaway, a Valley High School student.

Eighteen other unrelated bags of marijuana were also seized in the operation.
