Police Increase Crackdown on Heroin Use

Heroin use is on the rise in the Upper Peninsula and a law enforcement officer says its affecting crime in the area. State Police First Lt. Greg Cunningham, commander at the Gladstone Post, says heroin use is on the rise because it is getting more difficult to get prescription drugs. Cunningham says recent home and vehicle break-ins in the area are a spinoff of the drug problem as addicts look for ways to pay for their drugs. Law enforcement has been focusing on the heroin traffic coming into the Upper Peninsula from Wisconsin especially in the Menominee area.
