More street addicts showing desperation

The use of mouthwash and hand sanitizing liquid by street addicts is going up in Thunder Bay. Deputy Police Chief J-P Levesque says beat officers are telling him it's becoming a major concern and they see it quite often.  He says they are seeing a lot of these items being shoplifted and getting that under control is a challenge.  Levesque says there needs to be a way to handle these people away from the criminal justice system.
