    AAco Police Cheif Kevin Davis himself said there is a heroin “epidemic” in this county… And a guy with a bunch of pot is arrested. What are the priorities of local police and government?

    • John Frenaye says:

      I can’t disagree with the heroin issue, but if the police are called and there is a crime, they are kind of obligated to act. I do not think there was a long investigation here, just a “routine” call for service and discovery of something illegal.

    Notice that Uncle Gram doesn’t seem too disturbed that a white guy is pictured here as the suspect. Wonder if you would have taken a different tone if this was one of the kid being questioned in relation to the Annapolis robbery?
