The Missouri Highway Patrol reports that Missouri law enforcement reported 1,250 meth incidents in the first half of the year.

Patrol spokesman Lieutenant John Hotz says that number is down from 1,280 at the same time last year.

Hotz says the number of incidents doesn’t mean that Missouri leads the nation in meth production. He says it only shows that Missouri is doing a better job of cracking down on meth production and sales.
