Before school began Wednesday morning, the Sequatchie County School Resource Officer Sergeant Steven Billingsley received a report of a suspicious van with Ohio tags on the school property. After talking with the man and woman in the van, Billingsley found they had a handgun and a rifle inside. The rifle was dismantled and not in firing condition.
