Police are this morning conducting sniffer dog operations in Mullumbimby and are expected in Byron Bay this afternoon.
Tweed/Byron duty officer Darren Steel told Echonetdaily that the police were operating under a general warrant.
He said reports that the sniffer dog had been taken into Mullumbimby High School were incorrect, but he did say they had been operating in the area.
The dog squad is expected to move to Byron Bay today, and then to another location although police would not reveal where that would be.
The dog squad was most recently used at the Splendour in the Grass festival at Yelgun near Byron Bay.
