Does Rice County have an illegal drug problem?
Any amount of illegal drug activity could be considered a problem but Rice County is no different than any other urban/rural county. We are aware of the presence and are addressing the situation on multiple fronts. The Sheriff's Office has been an active participant and advocate of a two-pronged approach to combating the war on drugs: aggressive enforcement as well as early education of our youth to the dangers of drugs and other risky behaviors. If you suspect illegal drug activity call and ask to be directed to the Sheriff's drug investigator at 507-334-4391 or toll free anonymous at 866-968-8477.
