Evansville Police say money for heroin may have been the motivation behind a recent string of home burglaries on the east side.
Vanderburgh County Sheriff Chief Deputy Dave Wedding says that deputies have made a handful of arrests for heroin this year.
He says it's a dangerous drug because of what he calls it's dark side.
"Obviously heroin is more powerful because of a small quantity of heroin causes a tremendous high in the people who use it," says Wedding.
Wedding says cases of heroin possession aren't on the rise, but is a concern.
