Drug sweep conducted at Norton schools

A police check for narcotics at the high school and middle school in Norton resulted in one student being charged with possession of drug paraphernalia after vehicle checks in the high school parking lot.

Nine K-9 units from Cuyahoga Falls, Garrettsville, Kent, Stow and Norton conducted the simultaneous checks lasting less than 30 minutes the morning of Nov. 13.

Norton Police Chief John Dalessandro stressed the police department and school administration consider the safety and security of the students and staff a top priority.

    If you check one you check everyone,students, teachers, coaches, etc. I’d be giving the ACLU a call to check the leagalities.

      I’m sure they brought in dogs so they just don’t do lockers.
      I worked in a elementary school in akron yrs ago and a teacher was in fact stealing medication from the locked children’s med cabinet.
      No one is above suspect anymore!
