Police: Drug crime increase in 2009 not cause for alarm
Felony drug-related arrests in Farmington increased by 440 percent in 2009, but police chief Brian Lindquist isn't all that concerned.
Lindquist attributes the increase to a natural ebb and flow. In 2007, the number of drug-related crimes was on the high side. In 2008, it dipped to a mere five felony drug-related arrests. In 2009, the number again spiked, this time up to 22.
