Drug dealers target Mayor's car

August 24, 2006

Ray City - The Ray City mayor's car was vandalized last night after we aired a story about his new campaing to crack down on drug dealers.

Someone smashed the window of Mayor Carl Camon's SUV outside his home.

Camon says it's no coincidence that it happened after his announcement of a zero tolerance drug campaign. 
"Obviously someone got the message and I'm sure a drug dealer, drug user, or somebody that they know who didn't like what we started out to do retaliated in that way. But it doesn't make a difference what they do...we are going to continue our with our program," Camon said.

The Berrien County Sheriff's Department will beef up patrol units in Ray City.  GBI and Drug Task Force agents are expected to join in soon.

In his 10 years as Mayor, Camon says he's never had any property damaged or vandalized before.
