    was at the ramp tonight and there were security dogs sniffing all the packages in my truck and everyone else's. It was pretty crowded and I had to stop every so often after unloading the truck so the dog could smell further and further throughout the truck.. I think they said tonight was the first night they were doing this but not sure because I haven't been down there in a week or so.. Is this happening at every ramp? Or just mine? I don't really mind it I'm just curious, I think there doing it possibly because terrorism or drugs.. kind of interesting..

    No biggee. I've seen the cops at the ramp before. We even had the cops at our sta. for a little while with a dog. They're looking for drugs, they must have gotten a tip.

    They're also sniffing for explosives. We had a driver whose truck the dog found something in...but it was just a box shipped from a place that ships pork products.

    Haven't seen them in a while, but from time to time we have the local PD and dogs come sniff out a few packages, then they take them to the MGR and then they go play "fedex guy" and arrest someone. Not sure how they know whats coming but they usually know exactly what they are looking for ahead of time.

    It's pretty easy to spot a drug package once you've seen a few.

    I'm guessing it's brown with some tape on it? Maybe one of those white boxes with FedEx on it?

    Believe or not it is more times than not a white FedEx box. I guess these drug dealers figure those boxes are less likely to be searched.

    Easier to tell if it's been tampered with... just sayin.

    And, they're looking for hand written air bills.
    Especially ones from Office where they paid cash.
