****METH FOUND ON 16 YEAR OLD BREAKING AND ENTERING SUSPECT****
On the morning of September 2nd 2018 Deputies from the Roscommon County Sheriff’s Office were investigating an attempted break in at the local BP Gas Station in the Village of Roscommon.
When Deputies arrived, they found that someone had attempted to break into the building. The person/persons involved never made it inside.
As the investigation unraveled Deputies identified the suspect to be a 16-year-old juvenile male. While interviewing the suspected offender, Deputies located a small paper packet that contained a white powdery substance that is suspected to be crystal methamphetamine.
This information is being released as a reminder of the affects that narcotics are having on our community. This issue spans further than just the adult population and is now affecting our youth.
We encourage parents to have open conversations with their children about substance abuse and how it can impact their life.
If you have any information about any drug activity we encourage you to contact the Sheriff’s Office, and you can remain anonymous.
As drug addiction continues to increase in our area and throughout the state, we continue to fight against this epidemic through enforcement, treatment, and education. Along with programs in our community such as the Lion’s Den addictions treatment center in Roscommon and the Michigan State Police Angel Program, many other programs exist if you or someone you know needs help overcoming addiction. Attached is a list of programs provided in our area.
