We prove pure point spectrum with exponentially decaying eigenfunctions at all band edges for Schrödinger Operators with a periodic potential plus a random potential of the form Vw(x) = Σqi(w)f(x - i), where $f$ decays at infinity like |x|m for m>4d resp. $m>3d depending on the regularity of f. The random variables qi are supposed to be independent and identically distributed. We assume that their distribution has a bounded density of compact support.
