Dogs to sniff out drugs in Witney pubs

Dogs, trained in sniffing out illegal drugs such as cocaine and heroin, are to be used in random checks of pubs and clubs in Witney.

The dogs are owned by Grosvenor International Service (GIS) based in Northmoor.

Principal director, John Franklin-Webb, told Witney.net today that GIS carries out regular drugs searches in places like Oxford and Banbury.

A similar operation which was carried out in Witney a few years was considered a success.
