BILLINGS_ Tonight MTN’s investigation into meth in Montana continues as police reveal secrets from drug traffickers about the ways they actually get large quantities to our state.

Drugs such as meth and heroin are causing a spike in violent crimes. In Billings, meth-driven crimes have increased by 75 percent.

That’s because police say Mexican drug cartels are bringing meth and heroin into our state by the car-loads by way of our interstate system.

In part two of Montana’s Drug Superhighway, MTN shows you how police find switches and hidden compartments when stopping a massive drug load on Montana’s interstates.

Watch the MTN Nine o’clock News on the CW to see the full story.
