The state police have recently refocused its efforts to combat the meth and heroine epidemic that has taken over parts of their district, commented Indiana State Police Bremen Post Commander Lieutenant Chad Larsh. We are dedicating more troopers in this fight and are working closely with our communities in an effort to stop the spread of this scourge.
