On Friday, Feb. 13 law enforcement executed a search of Mott/Regent High School at about 9:30 a.m. According to a press release issued by the Hettinger County Sheriff’s office, they, along with the K-9 Units from the Morton County Sheriff’s Department and the Dickinson Police Department, conducted a narcotics search of the high school and junior high.
The students were placed in ‘lock down’ in the school gymnasium while the K-9 Units searched the area.
No narcotics were found on school premises, however further search of the parking lot uncovered narcotics and related contraband in a vehicle parked on the street near the lot.
There were no students taken from school, though according to the press release, individuals are being referred to juvenile and district court.
According to Mott/Regent Priciple Adam Hill, the search and lock down lasted roughly an hour and a half.
Over a month ago, the school signed a form allowing the K-9 Unit to do a random search when they were in the area.
The search was not scheduled.
