Law enforcement gathered in the Hub City Tuesday and heard a powerful story about the experiences of a former drug addict.

Shannon Peters of Perry County was a meth addict up until a short time ago.

Peters decided to tell his story, and got together with Sheriff Tommy Hickerson and made a video about the dangers of the highly addictive drug.

His video was featured at the State Law Enforcement Conference Tuesday.

Those attending said Peters made quite the impression on those who viewed his story.

Medical experts say that more than 10.4 million Americans, ages 12 or older, have used meth at least once in their lifetime.
