A surprise barracks inspection at Camp Lejeune unveils surprises of its own. A staff of officers went through drawers, closets, ventilation systems, and common areas. The search, base officials say, was unprecedented. Inspectors used drug-sniffing dogs. The effort uncovered several narcotics, illegals weapons, and alcohol. Base officials even arrested one marine for finding what they refer to as "contraband." Officials wouldn't say exactly what they discovered.
It's an on-going effort to keep marines drug and crime free. It also includes drug testing. A recent drug-testing sweep of the 2nd marine expeditionary force found 81 illegal hits. Marines failed with various drugs in their system. Ranging from marijuana to oxycodone, to amphetamines and cocaine. Base officials say they will continue these searches and tests indefinitely.
