Top U.S. Court Allows More Use of Drug-Sniffing Dogs

Jan. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Police can use drug-sniffing dogs to check vehicles stopped for traffic offenses, even without reason to suspect the presence of illegal narcotics, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled.

``A dog sniff conducted during a concededly lawful traffic stop that reveals no information other than the location of a substance that no individual has any right to possess does not violate the Fourth Amendment,'' Justice John Paul Stevens wrote for the court.
