Watauga County Sheriff Len Hagaman weighed in on the 2009 narcotics statistics that were released this morning.
As previously reported, both the number of arrests and charges increased from 2008 to 2009. 128 people were arrested on 732 charges in ’09 compared to 91 arrests on 408 charges in ’08.
Hagaman explained, “Vigilance, particularly from patrol because that leads to tie-ins to larger investigations. The partnership we’ve had over the past year with the Boone Police in particular, and the other agencies like Blowing Rock, Seven Devils and Beech Mountain. We’ve just formed these partnerships that have really paid off.”
