FARGO - Police expect one person to be charged with possession of marijuana after a drug-dog sweep at Fargo North High School today.

Lt. Joel Vettel said drug-sniffing dogs were used on vehicles in the parking lot and student lockers inside Fargo North. Dogs detected drug odors on four vehicles and no lockers, he said.

An 18-year-old male, who Vettel said police will not name because he hasn't yet been charged, will face a misdemeanor pot charge.

Vettel said police took about an hour to conduct the drug sweep with four dogs. Some were borrowed from Moorhead police and the Cass County Sheriff's Office. The school locked down at about 9 a.m., and all police personnel were out of the building by 10:30 a.m., Vettel said.

At the request of school officials, police use drug dogs in random checks at Fargo high schools on a periodic basis, Vettel said.
