For more than a year, Terri VanDam, the chief of the three-person Police Department in Guernsey, Wyo., and her sergeant, Misty Clevenger, had tried and failed to get to the bottom of the drug and alcohol problem in Guernsey, population 1,124.
Methamphetamine use was rampant, and much of it was bought and sold right at the bars, but when anyone tried to investigate, they ran into a wall of silence that went right up to City Hall.
Ms. VanDam reached out to the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, asking for help to turn her suspicions into a case.
Two weeks later, she was fired, followed by Ms. Clevenger.
