|160 pounds of marijuana from traffic stop in |
Sturbridge in 2011.
The great news is our law enforcement folks are sharp enough to catch a percentage of these travelers, and hand them over to the courts. The bad news is we are becoming known more for our ease of navigation to all New England points for drug dealers than we for families on vacation, and businesses looking for a new location.
It would be great to see some other news about Sturbridge other than the weekly narcotics bust. Then again, it does show we are very good at one thing: law enforcement, and if we can't have it all, vigilant law enforcement is a great thing to have.
That fact, alone, is one terrific selling point for our town.
Just add it to the list, and eventually it may catch some developers eye.
