Carson City, NV (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The Carson City Special Enforcement Team says they are working to stop drug activity in the area every single day.
As News 4 headed to Carson City on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014 for more information on a recent methamphetamine bust, our crew arrived to find the Special Enforcement Team (S.E.T.) already on scene of another drug raid.
“It’s just a matter of time. We’ll find you anywhere you go within the city and sometimes outside the city, we’re on the hunt and we will find you,” says James Boggan, an investigator on the Carson City S.E.T.
Just one day ago, Feb. 6, 2014, the Carson City Special Enforcement Team found 60 grams of methamphetamine inside a Carson City motel and arrested two men involved. Today, it was the Carson City Inn, where authorities found heroin. Details of the raid are limited due to an ongoing investigation that could connect today’s bust to a recent burglary ring in the Carson area.
Boggan says they are working every single day to stop drug activity however, a recent crackdown on meth has caused a shift in drug use, “There has been a transition between meth users and heroin users.”
Boggan added that when authorities keep a close eye on one drug, it becomes more difficult to transport and in turn more expensive, causing drug addicts to turn to cheaper drugs, and right now that’s heroin.
“We’re seeing a lot more heroin users in the high schools and it’s even starting to creep into the middle schools,” says Boggan.
It’s a scary reality that Boggan and the rest of Carson City authorities hope to end.
