Looks like they DID find something in Wakanoho's private  
apartment/condominium. That had to be offsite, if it was a condo.

Other wrestlers unaware of pot use 
Kyodo News
Wrestlers at the Magaki sumo stable have told police they were  not aware 
that stablemate Wakanoho smoked marijuana as alleged by police,  investigative 
sources said Wednesday. 
The Russian wrestler, whose real name is Gagloev Soslan  Aleksandrovich, was 
arrested Monday for possession of cannabis. 
Police are investigating when and why the 20-year-old wrestler  started 
smoking marijuana, and have questioned several wrestlers from the same  stable, the 
sources said. 
Police seized a cannabis pipe from the stable as well as from  Wakanoho's 
condominium, stirring speculation that he may have smoked marijuana  at the 
stable as well. 
The Japan Sumo Association indicated Tuesday it will dismiss  Wakanoho over 
the allegation. He would be the first active wrestler to be  dismissed in 
sumo's long history if the measure is adopted at the association's  emergency 
executive committee meeting Thursday. 
Nobody puts Asashoryu in the corner.
