    Good job, people! One quick question here, “how the devil do you pronounce Lt. Brklacich’s last name?” (I think I have his first name figured out. . .) 😉

    I believe it is pronounced “Brklacich”… OK, I will sound it out Ber-clay-sich. He’s a FANTASTIC Officer and an even better man! Good job on taking these two down! I have been seeing them in the bookings for years now!

    The writer needs to go back to school and learn what ‘Narcotics’ are. Not all illegal drugs are narcotics, especially methamphetamine. Anything made from opium poppies is a narcotic, like heroine, opium, morphine etc.
