Narcotics Unit Calls For Drug Monitoring Program

The prescription drug abuse problem continues to grow in the local area. Just yesterday afternoon two individuals from Kentucky set off a red flag when they tried to pass a prescription for Oxycodone at Halls Pharmacy in Krakow. The two men had received the prescription from a pain clinic in Georgia and were told to fill it along the i-44 corridor due to the lack of a drug monitoring system. Due to relaxed Missouri Laws these people are not actually breaking any laws but are either contributing to their own drug addiction or hoarding drugs to sell in their state. Detective Scott Briggs with the Franklin County Narcotics Unit would like to thank Halls Pharmacy for contacting the Sheriff’s office and encourages other pharmacies to do the same.

Early Tuesday morning, U.S. fighter jets, armed Predator and Reaper drones, and Navy ships launched airstrike attacks against ISIS, deep within Syria. While it is ironic that it was about a year ago at this time that President Obama was seriously considering strikes against Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad, sometimes threats emerge even greater than the last.
