Some of the names on the roll of those being arrested in Seneca’s current drug roundup are new to the police. So, is that a sign pointing to worsening drug problem in the area. Not necessarily, in the opinion of Chief John Covington. “I cannot attribute this ‘in whole’ to a worsening drug problem; however, it is a contributing factor. It might also be said that some peoples luck ran out and they have just not been caught before,” Covington told 96.3/WGOG NEWS today. The chief also traces a factor in what’s expected to be as many as 41 arrests to enhanced efforts by his department’s narcotics unit, which this year has been expanded by one new agent.
