— Edgerton High School officials came up empty on a drug search Wednesday morning.

Six dogs from several police departments went through the school and parking lot looking for drugs, Principal Mark Coombs said. The dogs indicated nine "hits"—six on lockers and three on vehicles—but no drugs were found.


"We're very happy about that," Coombs said.


It was the first canine search this year, but the school has done random searches before, he said.


"The big reason why we do these searches is to make sure our campus is safe and primarily safe of drugs," Coombs said.


Students were kept in their classrooms for about 45 minutes while the search went on, Coombs said.
