Surprise drug sweeps at Ocean County high schools Tuesday
TOMS RIVER — The Ocean County Prosecutors Office conducted an unannounced sweep of the grounds all Ocean County high schools Tuesday, looking for drugs.
The sweeps were done at each school as part of the prosecutor's office's partnership with police K-9 units to "Sniff Out" drug-free school zones. But authorities wouldn't say what if anything they found.
"As pointed out in the past, we do not discuss our finds with media or public," Al Della Fave, spokesman for the prosecutor's office, said. "When something is found we advise the school officials and parents so that they will be aware of an issue and can take immediate corrective action.
"We don't want this to become a "what is the worse High School Thing. It is being done to assure a Drug Free School Zone and a safe learning environment for OC students."
