Richland County Crimestoppers Crime of the Week
Crimestoppers is asking for information on individuals or groups that are selling or providing illegal dangerous drugs, such as Methamphetamines (Meth), Marijuana, Heroin, prescription medication or any other illegal drug in the Richland County area. Law enforcement has report that even with the few number of people in our area, there is a large amount of selling of illegal drugs. Those under the influence of Meth often become agitated and feel "wired." Their behavior becomes unpredictable. They may be friendly and calm one moment, angry and terrified the next. Some are compelled to repeat meaningless tasks: others pick at imaginary bugs on their skin.
It is possible that you or someone you love is addicted to prescription drugs. Most of us take prescription drugs only for the reason the doctor intended. Nevertheless, an estimated 48 million people (aged 12 and older), according to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, have used prescription drugs for nonmedical reasons in their lifetime. That figure represents approximately 20% of the U.S. population.
In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in prescription drug misuse or abuse. This increase has led to a corresponding increase in ER visits because of accidental overdoses as well as admissions to drug treatment programs for drug addictions.
Please contact Crimestoppers if you have any information on those distributing dangerous illegal drugs in our area. It is known that illegal drug activities lead to other crimes and problems in personal and family life. So, help us keep our community a safe place to live, work, and raise our children.
