Drug Sweeps Turn up no Illegal Drugs at Cuyahoga Falls, Woodridge High

The Cuyahoga Falls Police K-9 Unit conducted each search on Tuesday and Wednesday.

During a routine drug search, the Cuyahoga Falls Police K-9 Unit swept through Woodridge High School on Tuesday, and canvassed Cuyahoga Falls High School on Wednesday.

The searches turned up no illegal drugs, according to AlertNow messages sent out by each district to its respective parents and students.

While police conducted the sweep, students in each school were put on "Place and Secure" status.

Place and secure is implemented to closely supervise students and to restrict their hallway movement, said Cuyahoga Falls High School Principal Anne Alfano.

While the status is active, teaching and learning isn't interrupted and students are typically still able to exchange from one class to the next. 

Alcohol was found in a student's parked car, and that student will face consequences, said Alfano.
