Robins AFB conducts drug searches on base

Officers at Robins Air Force Base today conducted a drug inspection at the base, with the help of drug-sniffing dogs and local law enforcement.

In a base statement, Robins officials said searches were carried out "in a very professional and methodical fashion" but did not say why the searches were conducted or what they found.

Some Robins employees told 13WMAZ that some buildings on base were cleared out for as a long as an hour and a half.

The Twiggs County and Houston County sheriff's office deputies were among those helping with the searches.

Here is the complete base statement:

Security personnel conducted a drug inspection today at Robins Air Force Base.

The inspection team members, including the support of drug dog teams from local law enforcement, carried out the inspection in a very professional and methodical fashion.

Results of the inspection are not currently available.

Because our workforce is our most vital resource, it is the Installation commander's responsibility to take appropriate action to ensure a safe, secure and drug-free environment.

Drug usage is a detriment to any workforce and our mission. Drug use is in direct conflict with providing a safe and secure environment for our workforce.

People are our most important resource and the Air Force is committed to protecting them. Safety concerns are a top priority and we must take steps to promote safety in our daily operations.
