Barbour County Lower Crime Rates

Barbour County Sheriffs deputies are cracking down on crime and residents notice the difference.

Barbour County has seen a significant decrease in its crime rate, a drop of 62-percent in the past year.

Sheriff Leroy Upshaw says he and his men noticed a significant drop just in the last six months.

That's when they started concentrating on drug busts.

Upshaw says there have been more than 400-drug arrests since June.

Upshaw says 9-out of the 14-patrol cars were paid for with money confiscated from drug arrests.

He says that saves taxpayers money.
