METHUEN — A drug sweep of Methuen High School last Wednesday morning did not turn up any drugs, Police Chief Joseph Solomon said yesterday.

Drug dogs were sent through the hallways to sniff at student lockers, Solomon said.

The dogs searched the main high school where students in grades 10 through 12 attend classes, and the central building, where freshman attend classes, Solomon said.

Solomon said Superintendent Judy Scannell wanted to be pro-active in conducting the annual sweep of the schools.

That nothing was found, Solomon said, "says a lot about the work they do at the high school."

He said Scannell used the reverse calling system to alert parents that the sweep had been done and of the results.
