Minnesota’s U.S. Attorney in St. Cloud Talking Heroin, Human Trafficking and Collaboration
ST. CLOUD -- Newly confirmed U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger is in St. Cloud today meeting with law enforcement officials and county attorneys. It's part of a statewide swing for Minnesota's top federal prosecutor to generate discussions on how local, state and federal authorities can work together.
Luger has made similar visits to Rochester, Duluth and Moorhead. He says the feedback he's received has been positive. Luger says there is a real appreciation for collaboration across departments and jurisdictions, and he says it is helping in the fight against crime.
Luger says top priorities for his administration include the growing heroin problem in Minnesota, human trafficking, cyber crimes and identity theft.
Luger was confirmed in February and took over for B. Todd Jones who left to head up the Bureau of Tobacco, Alcohol, Firearms and Explosives.
