New names indicator of worsening problem?

November 21, 2013

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.
