  • The federal government is taking steps to address an increase in drug-related crimes in the oil patch of western North Dakota and eastern Montana.
    Director of National Drug Control Policy R. Gil Kerlikowske (kur-lih-KOW'-skee) says in a letter to Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota that Williams County is being designated a part of the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Program, paving the way for more federal help.
    The Drug Enforcement Agency also has assigned a special agent to Bismarck.
    Kerlikowske visited North Dakota and Montana in July with Heitkamp and Sen. Jon Tester of Montana.
