— Two police dogs sniffed their way past Craig High School student lockers on Friday, helping officials find a suspected marijuana pipe but no illicit substances.

The Janesville Police Department’s two dogs searched the freshman and junior halls, a total of 859 lockers, district spokeswoman Sheryl Miller said.


The dogs indicated they smelled something suspicious at 12 lockers.


The 24-minute search began at 12:45 p.m., Miller said. As usual, students were locked in their classrooms and kept away from the dogs.


Police Sgt. Brian Donohoue said Friday afternoon that an investigation was continuing. He said there probably would be at least one arrest.


The search is part of the district’s regular program of drug dog searches. Officials said they had hoped to search all the high and middle schools once each semester this year.


So far, only Marshall Middle School has not been searched during the first semester.


The dogs have “hit” on lockers at all the schools, but the pipe at Craig was the first item of contraband officials reported finding in the dog searches.


The dogs are trained to react to marijuana, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine.
