St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - Missouri law enforcement officials have changed their tactics in the war on meth. New figures show that the changes are having an effect.
In 2013, for the first time in a decade, Missouri did not lead the nation in meth busts. The Show-Me state dropped to number 3 behind Indiana and Tennessee. The Post-Dispatch reports that changes in enforcement approaches and new laws may have caused the statistics to drop. The Jefferson County drug task force says they focused on making larger-scale labs.
Earlier in March, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported a seizure of 95 meth labs just outside Mountain Grove, Missouri. The drug raid was believed to be a record for a single seizure in Missouri.
Police aren't releasing many details about a man found shot to death in north St. Louis Sunday afternoon.
Homicide Detectives were called to the 8900 block of Riverview Boulevard after a man was found dead in a car. Police say the man had been shot multiple times, but haven't identified the victim.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 866-371-8477.
