Guyana Aging sniffer dogs to blame for rising cocaine shipments. U.S. officials have complained to the government of Guyana about a recent spike in cocaine shipments arriving on flights from the South American nation. Security officials in the former British Colony think they know how the drugs are getting through: Sniffer dogs are either too old or too poorly trained to detect contraband. Police say the three dogs currently on patrol will be replaced soon, but the dogs' handler says training is the problem. Maurice Smith complains that the dogs are not provided with cocaine to sniff during training, apparently because authorities are worried about theft. Jun 29, 2010
