Meth Arrests Up in South Dakota

Nov 1, 2017

South Dakota officials says meth arrests are up by thirty two percent, statewide, from this time last year.

Several counties experienced a substantial increase in meth arrests, including Minnehaha, Pennington, Fall River and Oglala Lakota counties.

Bryan Gortmaker is the Director of the Division of Criminal Investigation with the Attorney General’s office in South Dakota.

He says law enforcement has only busted six meth labs this year. He says that means most of the meth is trafficked into the state.
