Williams County Has A Huge Drug Problem

Accord­ing to the Bryan Times, we have a huge prob­lem locally with drugs. In fact, it’s more than just a prob­lem… the paper is referi­ing to it as an epi­demic, accord­ing to Williams County Sher­iff Steve Towns.

Metham­phet­a­mine is report­edly a huge prob­lem locally, in spite of aggre­sive actions aimed at pros­e­cut­ing those oper­at­ing meth labs.

Of the 42 indict­ments returned this week by the Williams County Grand Jury, 34 were drug related. It was the most ever in a sin­gle month, set­ting a record in Williams County.

The prob­lem is more than just drugs. It also involves other crimes, such as rob­bery and theft, which often are caused by those need­ing money to sup­port their drug habit.
