NOW you say it's a problem. My family has been hit by those bastards twice in the last couple years. They made off with the pipes, the electrical conduits, the cords off the back of the appliances, and half of the stuff I had in storage!

No the problem isn't Meth the problem is a Do Nothing lawman, more concerned with getting his reality TV Show career started. When the thefts happened, it was the state police that showed up the first time, then the second time, inspite of FOUR CALLS to Whitley, no one bothered to come out.

Thanks so much McCreary County Sherrif's office! I always knew you looked down your nose at certain parts of the county, but to actually have a police report made, and be told "well there's just nothing we can do about it" is bull manure.

You want support of the citizens, make the neccasary arrests... get the drugs out of our woods and valleys, and shoot enough of the dealers that more won't want to move in!
