No drugs found during ARHS search

Northborough – Police Chief Mark Leahy released this statement this morning:

This morning at 9:45 a.m., five members of the Massachusetts State Police K-9 Unit, accompanied by Northborough and Southborough Police Officers and school administrators, conducted a search of Algonquin Regional High School for the presence of illegal drugs.

Using five State Police narcotics detection dogs- each paired with a school administrator and a local police officer- the entire search took sixteen minutes to accomplish. I am very pleased to report that no illegal drugs were found, either inside the school building or in vehicles parked in the school parking lots. For quality assurance, test drugs were concealed in a specific locker to test each dog’s skills.

Each of the five dogs properly (and separately) alerted on the locker where the test sample was placed.

I’d like to thank Principal Thomas Mead and Superintendent Charles Gobron for their support and cooperation, as well as the staff and students at Algonquin. Through ongoing collaboration we can continue to ensure that Algonquin Regional High School remains a safe and secure environment for both our children and the dedicated staff.

Plans for the next unannounced search have already begun, as promised.
