Frederick, Md (KM) Police K-9 searches were conducted Thursday morning at Linganore and Oakdale High Schools.
The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office and Frederick Police K-9 teams searched both schools for any substances or items which are not permitted on school property. Both schools were placed on a “hold” status while the dogs conducted their sweep. Students and staff were told to clear the hallways and remain in their rooms or other areas until the “all clear” was announced.
The Sheriff’s Office says nothing was found at either school.
Authorities say they will continue to conduct these unannounced sweeps at Frederick County’s public high schools throughout the school year.
