    Crime follows heroin to Northfield, Minnesota

    http://www.startribune.com/crime/story/1284010.html
    [size=12pt]Police tie escalating drug use that started last year with high schoolers to a wave of thefts.[/size]

    What police say began as a handful of Northfield High School students experimenting with heroin 18 months ago has mushroomed into an epidemic in the upscale college community, with more than 150 kids hooked on the drug.

    Northfield Police Chief Gary Smith, who took the unusual step of publicizing the problem by calling a news conference Tuesday, said that as many as 250 current and former Northfield High School students could be involved, with some feeding heroin habits of as much as $800 a day.

    The growing heroin problem, which is also being investigated by the Metro Gang Strike Force and a regional drug task force, has increased consternation and crime in one of Minnesota's safest, most educated and affluent cities.

    Wow that is hard to believe.
    That is where we went for excitement on the weekends.
    Proves how small of a town I grew up in.
    Alot of people drinking beer and liqour back then, and some pot, but I never seen any heroin.

    How in the hell can a highschool kid afford an $800.00 a day heroin habbit?
    petty theft isn't going to cover it.
