Aging sniffer dogs blamed for Guyana drug lapses

The Associated Press: "GEORGETOWN, Guyana — Sniffer dogs are being blamed for airport security lapses in Guyana, where police said Monday that their canines are too old or not skilled enough to detect drugs stuffed inside suitcases.
Police in the South American country are preparing to buy and train new animals to replace the force's three sniffer dogs — two at the main international airport and one at police headquarters, police Chief Henry Greene said.
'The record shows they are not making many cases. The new dog we have has made only one case,' Greene said."
