Grand Forks County Sheriff Bob Rost joined MacTalk to discuss drugs and crime that might be associated with drug use. Is there a change afoot in the area?
As our interview wound down and we began discussing the danger of ATV’s, traffic fines in North Dakota (he thinks they’re a joke) and his personal future after his term expires in 2018, Rost plainly stated the following “I’m going to run for County Commission I think.”
Is illegal drug use increasing in the Grand Forks – East Grand Forks area? Is crime increasing due to increased drug use in the area? Or, are the numbers using drugs the same and we’re reading about them more because of the powerful nature of the drugs they are using?
We ask three longtime area law enforcement officers about their observations on drug use and crime, is it changing? Here’s what they had to say.
