VINCENNES, Ind. (WTHI) - It took days to plan and hours to execute but authorities are calling a surprise drug sweep at a correctional facility a success.

Eight Knox County deputies, two Daviess County deputies and three officers from the Vincennes Police Department coordinated efforts. They used K-9s to detect drugs.

The K-9s alerted inside the facility as well as in a nearby parking lot.

Officers found residue, drug paraphernalia and evidence of past use.

Knox County Prosecuting Attorney Dirk Carnahan says the search was a success.

No arrests have been made yet pending further reports and testing. Carnahan says it's a good sign that with such a thorough search immediate arrests were not needed.
