Report a Crime

The RANGE Task Force is designed to mainly focus on drug complaints and drug traffickers, but will have the ability to also investigate all other kinds of crimes.

The RANGE Task Force is a collaborative effort of local agencies pooling resources for criminal investigations involving corporations, businesses, and individuals who are operating in concert, whose activities range in the area of illegal sale and distribution of controlled substances, illegal distribution of alcohol and tobacco, illegal gambling and prostitution and any criminal activity that poses a threat to the safety and welfare of our communities.

As a result of 82 investigations in the year of 2010 money, drugs and/or weapons were confiscated off the streets of Montgomery County. 2010 had a 30% increase in citizen complaints and over 65% of the calls yielded enough information to create valid investigations.

"Residents are tired of drug and gun related crimes, especially when it is located near our children's schools. More and more citizens are speaking out against this type of criminal activity and we will use all available resources to rid our neighborhoods of drugs and guns."
Sheriff Phil Plummer
