Rotarians learn about drugs
Grantsburg Rotarians learned about the local illegal drug trade on February 8 in a presentation by Burnett County Deputy Sheriffs Mitch Olson and Bailey Mangen, along with their K-9s Tracker and Croix. Deputy Mangen is showing the group packets of heroin and meth, describing the difference and noting how these highly addictive drugs affect those who use them. Burnett County has been aggressive in drug arrests and the K-9s have been a huge help in locating illegal drugs.
