If we can spot the problems before they become big problems there might be a chance of reducing these crimes. See this report from 2 years ago... http://millerplace-rockypoint.patch.com/articles/crime-report-dwi-charges-stolen-medications-and-driving-without-a-license We need to get serious about treating people with substance abuse/violence problems.

Had a suspicion this might be the case...sadly there are a lot of 'good kids' doing very bad things, and for all the wrong reasons. Drugs are a scourge on our society and rampant even here in our sleepy little towns. Kids get hooked; there are EXTREMELY limited resources for treatment, what might be available can be VERY costly (insurance coverage is notoriously deficient in this area, Medicaid pays more) and often ineffective- promising lives are ruined, families are destroyed emotionally, physically and financially, society takes its toll. I believe at the root of most crimes lies drugs, yet they're everywhere. Drugs are a big business- the very people who would sell their souls for greed and profit from bringing this poison into our worlds live amongst us as neighbors! While I believe sensible gun control is an important issue, maybe if the government worked harder on keeping drugs out of our country and focused on reasonable treatment, rehabilitation and YES punishment of those afflicted there would be less of a need for it. The petty crimes we read of all too often here in Patch would decrease and the chances of those escalating to the horribly violent crimes we read of occurring all over our country would decrease as well.
