Rogue River, Ore. -- A Rogue River man is amping up his fight against meth in a very controversial way.

Bob Smith hung a drug dealer dummy in front of his Magerle Drive home on Thursday.

It sends a strong message to the drug dealers he says are in his neighborhood.

The retired clinical psychologist said his goal is to bring attention to the issue and take out drug dealers.

"We can do it. It's been done before. I'm glad to participate in it.
We need other people to chip in, take a stand. Better take a stand or it's going to be your kids or grandkids," said Smith.

"We gotta stop this epidemic," he continued. 

NBC 5 News spoke with another neighbor who said they agreed with Smith's belief that there's a drug problem in the Magerle Drive area, which is near a school.

In February Smith put up a bright sign that read "Rogue River Meth Dealer Oasis" to get people talking about his cause.

Smith said he's done similar demonstrations in other cities and has been successful in either putting drug dealers behind bars or making them leave the area.
