LANEG makes 'dent' in drug trade

Sheriff reports that 3 pounds of meth were removed from the streets in 2021

The task force in charge of long-term narcotic investigations in Laclede County seized more than three pounds of methamphetamine in Laclede County for the year 2021 as it continued its drug-fighting efforts. Lake Area Narcotics Enforcement Group’s work has made a significant impact on the local drug trade during the past five years, Laclede County Sheriff David Millsap said in a press release issued Tuesday. “Meth is usually sold on the street in quarter or half gram allotments. Taking three pounds off the street makes a dent in the local trade,” said Millsap. For more on this story see Wednesday's LCR.
