Canines Brought in to Search Corrigan-Camden ISD for Drugs, CORRIGAN, September 19, 2013 - On September 17, 2013, Corrigan Police Department and National Canine Interdiction Association conducted routine narcotic searches of the Corrigan-Camden Junior High and Corrigan-Camden High School campuses, including lockers, common areas and parking lots. Areas were searched with K9 service dogs. Those in attendance for the search were trainer, Norm Garner and his two dogs, Fide and XT, Corrigan Police Department K9 Officer, James Hight and K9 Leigh, Sergeant Steve Murry with Smith County Constable's Office and K9 Calib, the newest member of the Association, Houston County Sheriff's Office Deputy Kody Stephens and K9 Nitro, Chief Darrell Gibson of Corrigan Police Department and Detective Jerry Grissom of Corrigan Police Department. Corrigan-Camden Superintendent, Sherry Hughes and Curriculum and Special Programs Administrator, Sandy Burris, along with campus administrators, also assisted with the K9 search. The dogs did in fact alert officers to the possibility of drugs in lockers and in parking lot cars. If the dogs alerted officers about a certain locker, then the locker and the one's around that locker were marked and searched for drugs and/or drug paraphernalia. Dogs also alerted officers of certain cars. Officers didn't find any drugs or drug paraphernalia.
