RUSK COUNTY — 30 people have been arrested in less than 3 months for Meth and other drug-related offenses, according to a press release from the Rusk County Sheriff’s Office.
In the recent months, the Rusk County Sheriff’s administration and the Ladysmith Police Department administration have been faced with the difficult question of, “what can be done about the methamphetamine problem in our community.”
The Rusk County Sheriff’s office and the Ladysmith Police Department understand that this issue is a problem in our community and have been working on ways to keep our citizens safe and rid the community of this dangerous drug.
Due to stronger enforcement efforts and utilization of the Rusk County K-9 units, the Rusk County Sheriff’s office and the Ladysmith Police Department have arrested 30 individuals since December 22, 2020 for Methamphetamine/drug related offenses. Many of the cases the past few months yielded substantial amounts of methamphetamine.
The Rusk County Sheriff’s office and the Ladysmith Police Department will continue to work hard to combat this ongoing problem. Both departments urge citizens to come forward if they have any information in regard to drug activity. Together, we can make our community a safer place to live.
