Budget Cut for Jefferson County Drug Investigators
The budget cuts mean fewer investigators for what seemed to be record number of cases.
The Jefferson County drug task force was expected to investigate 400 methamphetimine labs this year, says the stltoday.com news website.
The task force was originally expected to have 15 investigtors when it started more than a decade ago. This year it will have about seven or eight investigators pursuing 10-20 tips daily.
