      Metro's much publicized bag search program, which was put into place to step up safety throughout the transit system, didn't result in a single arrest over the past year and a half, WTOP reports.

      According to a WTOP public records request, authorities have made no arrests since the random search system began in December of 2010.

      The program, which is funded by a Homeland Security grant and is done in conjunction with the Transportation Security Administration, will go on as normal, according to Metro Transit Police Chief Michael Taborn.
