Clark County school police K-9 unit sniffs out first gun on campus
Clark County School District police arrested a 16-year-old Desert Pines High School student on Tuesday for bringing a gun on campus — the first weapon seizure credited to its K-9 team.
Officers responded to the school following a tip that a student in a portable classroom might be carrying a gun, either in his waistband or backpack, according to school police.
Police removed the student from the classroom and conducted a pat-down for weapons, but did not find one on the student. Police then removed all students from the classroom and conducted a K-9 search, in which the district’s four K-9 officers sniff the room for guns. K-9 officer King alerted to a backpack on the floor and police recovered a pistol inside.
