Random drug sweep comes up empty at Northampton County Prison

Allentown Morning Call

PA - Ten police dogs sniffed their way through most cells of the Northampton County Prison on a surprise drug search earlier this week and did not find any drugs.

The dogs, from seven area police departments, searched all housing sections of the prison except for those used by women, special-needs inmates and inmates who are segregated from other prisoners.

Prison common areas were not searched because the dogs grew tired after 90 minutes of searching cellblocks, some of which were built in 1871 and have limited ventilation.
