“You may have noticed our local Law Enforcement, including Trident, have been very busy dealing with Methamphetamine and those smuggling it into our area and selling it,” said Sheriff Mike Bitnar. “The Methamphetamine we are seeing is the actual “Crystal Meth” that is smuggled into the Country.”
“We have however seen a big decrease in our local Meth Labs that were prevalent just a few years ago,” add Bitnar. “We will continue to work hard to keep Meth, Heroin, and other Narcotics out of Chippewa County.”
