Preacher Tries to Prevent Drug Use

By  | 

The Butler County Sheriff's Department says they've had a large number of drug arrests over the past several months.

Many of the arrests have stemmed from meth busts. Reverend Mike Allen is the new Drug Prevention Coordinator for the Butler County. This is a first for the county.

Allen says that the trust he's developed with youth as a minister will help him relate to the group that officials say needs his help the most.
