  1. It almost seems like Sheriff Joe from Maricopa County had something to do with all these busts!
    Frankly I think you guys are doing a great job. Dunkirk is to small of a city to be so overpopulated with Meth and Heroin. In AZ a manufacturing charge would be at least 10 yrs. Also methamphetamine is considered a “dangerous drug’ which carries a higher sentence than a controlled. Even being caught with a glass pipe is a felony. I don’t like the guy at all but Sherriff Joe knows what hes doing, especially regarding the Meth. No bueno.
