LONG BEACH, Miss. (AP) - Long Beach school officials say some prescription drugs and weapons were found in the office of suspended high school principal Peter Dabbs who is the subject of a termination hearing.

School district attorney Jim Simpson tells WLOX-TV of Biloxi (https://bit.ly/1uZJldy ) the items were found after Dabbs was suspended in July and before a termination hearing began last week.

Dabbs was suspended with pay amid allegations of having inappropriate relationships with teachers.

A termination hearing is expected to resume again Oct. 17 and Oct. 31. The school board will decide whether to reinstate Dabbs.

Dabbs’ attorney Wayne Woodall said the prescription drugs and weapons don’t belong to his client. He says the items were from a prior administration during which students were appropriately sanctioned.

Dabbs was named principal in 2011.
