Police Chief Harry Snellings said the following numbers reflect six details conducted in the month of May:

  • 20 arrests
  • 1 DWAI Drugs
  • Drug arrests include two counts of 3rd degree Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance (B-Felony) , one count of 5th degree Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance (D-Felony) and eight counts of 7th degree Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance
