More and more drug-related offenses in rodental

In rodental, there is less theft, but more drug dealing and drug smuggling than in the past," he said. This is a simple summary of the crime statistics of the police department (PI) of neustadt, which is responsible for rodental. But it’s not quite that simple in reality, as a closer look at the balance sheet shows, which the head of the PI neustadt, gunther eppler, explained to the city council in detail.
The city council members were concerned to learn of the increase in drug-related crime in their city. After 14 cases in 2011, there were 30 last year. However, the police had already dealt with 35 drug-related offences in 2010 and only 12 in 2008. Fluctuations also influenced by the intensity of controls. Classical drugs such as marijuana now account for a small proportion, as gunther eppler explained. "It’s all about chrystal speed", he stated. The drug is available practically everywhere: "whoever wants to get drugs in our country, will get them", eppler made clear. The supply routes from the czech republic, for example, are too open to prevent a well-stocked drug market in the region. Chrystel in particular is considered dangerous by the officials because it causes addiction even faster than heroin. Eppler: "this leads almost inevitably to human catastrophe." The police officer had one small consolation for the city council members: "at least we don’t have any children involved in intoxication-related crimes."
The jump in the number of criminal offenses (from 87 in 2011 to 151 last year) and property damage (86 to 154), which are linked to each other, is also clear. "Behind such jumps there are always series", gunther eppler explained. As an example, he cited the case of three defendants from the inspection’s work who were charged with 62 offenses such as graffiti graffiti, damage to cars and intoxication offenses. "In this case, the processing of the case fills seven folders", said eppler.
The area of responsibility of the PI neustadt, which in addition to rodental also includes the municipalities of weidhausen and sonnefeld, is characterized by an increase in violent crime (by eleven to 60). The number of simple assault cases is actually on the rise (up 15 to 180 cases). There is a significant increase in the number of cases of dangerous and serious bodily injury (by twelve to 52 cases).
A total of 607 criminal offenses were handled by the police in the rodental city area alone in 2012 (after 563 in the previous year). This corresponds to an increase of 7.8 percent. However, criminals were not allowed to feel particularly safe. Because the clearance rate is 70.5 percent. Gunther eppler can therefore claim for himself and his colleagues at PI neustadt: "two out of three offenders are caught."
