EPD says heroin possession is a concern after a string of east side burglaries

Posted: Updated:

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.
