Fosston, MN — While it may not be dominating the headlines, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office wants to remind citizens that drugs are still very much an issue in the community. Chief Deputy Mike Norland and Investigator Jesse Haugen joined the KKCQ Food for Thought program recently to discuss drug problems in the area. Deputy Norland says their most common drug concerns revolve around meth, opioids, and a new pill-based drug that contain fentanyl.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Officers can’t be everywhere at once, so the public can play a crucial role in spotting drug activity. Investigator Haugen says if you see something, say something.

There are a number of things that can constitute suspicious behavior, including high volumes of traffic at odd times, people meeting in odd places, and anything that seems out of line for any specific area.

You can report suspicious activity anonymously by contacting the Polk County Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at 1-877-204-7505. If it is urgent issue or an emergency, please call 9-1-1.
