ALTOONA, BLAIR COUNTY - From his stern warnings to drug dealers, to educating the public about the dangers, agent Jim Walstrom does it all when it comes to keeping drugs off the streets.

Now after more than 30 years of fighting crime, the last 26 spent with the State Attorney General, Walstrom is retiring.

He still plans to continue to train bomb and drug dogs at his company, Keystone K-9.  As for what's next after that? Walstrom says, "There's a couple jobs I've looked at there's a couple offers out there I'm looking at.  I don't think im going to sit home and watch young and the restless but I don't know if I wanted to jump back into a full time job right now but if the opportunity is correct I would."
