On Tuesday, agents of the Polk County Police Departments drug task force arrested five area residents on multiple dangerous drug possession and distribution charges.
The drugs seized include the schedule IV prescription drug alprazolam (Xanax), schedule III prescription drug hydrocodone and cocaine. Alprazolam and hydrocodone are legal with a doctor’s prescription however; if they are found to be in a person’s possession without a valid prescription and not in the original container they become felony drug charges.
Identity theft, robbery, burglary, domestic violence and shoplifting are just a few of the crimes that have increased due to the use of illegal drugs such as meth, cocaine and prescription drug addictions.
