School searched by canine drug unit

By Judy Reed

Some students were alarmed last week when Cedar Springs High School went into a “Code Yellow” and kept students inside their classrooms while a canine drug unit searched the building.

According to both Cedar Springs Police Chief Roger Parent, and Cedar Springs High School principal Ron Behrenwald, the search was routine. “It had been awhile since we had done one, so some students were surprised,” said Behrenwald.

Parent said they got some free canine dogs from Wyoming Police on a training day. “We covered the whole high school, and it went well,” he remarked. He said no drugs were found on the premises.

Behrenwald said that the dogs hit on a few lockers, but they didn’t find anything. “The dogs are trained well, and if there is residue on their clothing, and they touch their locker, they (dogs) can pick it up,” he explained.

“It was uneventful,” said Behrenwald. “That’s the way we like it to be.”
