Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek stopped by the KSTP building at the Minnesota State Fair on Friday to discuss his department's booth and some awareness campaigns.

Stanek said the department is focusing on prescription medication disposal, following a rise in heroin deaths across the county and state. Officials say prescribed narcotics play a large role in heroin use, because the street drug is cheaper and easier to find than the medications.
