Madison County deputies said 26 people were arrested in a joint drug operation with the Buncombe County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies said the arrests were the result of a seven month undercover investigation into drug distribution at Madison County High School.
Deputies said five students were arrested and one student's mother was arrested at the high school on Friday. Deputies said they witnessed the mother take drugs from her child's car and try to conceal them.
A large amount of stolen property was recovered, including a county-owned bulldozer.
