No warrant 2 a.m. apt. complex drug search

• .

Law enforcement officers walked drug-sniffing dogs through a Pulaski apartment complex early Monday morning -- a practice occasionally used to search for evidence of illegal drug activity, the town's police chief said.

About 2 a.m., federal agents and officers from the Pulaski, Dublin, Radford, Blacksburg and Virginia Tech police departments; the Pulaski County, Montgomery County and Wythe County sheriff's offices; the Claytor Lake Drug Task Force; and Virginia State Police showed up at Meadowview Apartments on Lee Highway with their drug dogs, Pulaski police Chief Gary Roche said.

In what Roche called a coordinated multi-agency narcotics interdiction assignment, the officers walked through Meadowview's 10 three-story buildings with their dogs.

If the dogs alerted on an apartment, Roche said, officers could knock on the door or request a search warrant.
