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.
