 So yesterday Craig's list was offline until around noon, It just came back online and then the Power went off.. Well it was about Lunch time so I decided to take the wife uptown for something to eat.

 

I joke about living in a small town (Ellenboro has a bar and 8 houses in it) and we don't really think about drugs,killing,theft etc. very much.

 

About a Quarter of a mile up the road we saw a Pickup in the ditch with a sheared off power pole and high line wires on the highway.  We stayed on the scene until the police department showed up so no one would drive into the wires.

 

Today the following article was posted on a local news board,  Ya know it just about sends shivers down my back to realize that we were dealing with a lot more than high line wires on the road.

 

 

 

On December 23, 2012 at 1:04 p.m., Grant County Dispatch received a call of a truck Vs. power pole crash on CTH A near Graney Road in Ellenboro Twp.
 
  The power pole was broken off and power lines were across the roadway.

  K-9 A-Rod was then deployed around Caya’s vehicle and alerted to the presence of the odor of narcotics. Caya and his vehicle were searched. Officers found suspected crystal methamphetamine (Meth) and marijuana on Caya.

  Caya also had a loaded handgun in his pocket. Officers also located marijuana, meth paraphernalia and other drug paraphernalia in the vehicle as well as 6 other loaded handguns and rifles including an AR-15 assault rifle. All of the firearms were loaded and had several loaded magazines.

Makes one stop and think for sure, never used to worry about stopping and offering to help change a tire or push someone out of a ditch, not in this day and age.....  too bad.  Glad all turned out ok for you.

He was sitting in the truck while we were there, The Police showed up so we just left, didn't see the accident or anything so I couldn't think of any reason to stick around.

Glad all is ok I tell my wife all the time be aware of your surroundings she helps the local fire dept. as a EMT

They are trained if they get on scene and they see major signs of drugs to leave the scene a wait for the law .I realize you did not see anything it just shows how dangerous it can be.

The "town" i live near is just under 300 people.. They cleaned out two meth houses there. Small towns are not even safe any more.  R.C.M.P. and county Police where there for two days.  Just amazing how far out of a big city they will go to make and store this crap then run to the city to sell and worse..  I really wonder if there is anywhere that this crap doesn't reach..

Meth flows more cash into & out of the county I live in than any other source... legal or not.   It's a scary world we're living in... even in our small towns.

Glad you are OK
