According to a report in today’s Post-Journal, the Jamestown Police Department seized more than 5100 bags of heroin in 2014, compared to 836 in 2013.
The police department also saw increases in the amount of methamphetamine seized, as well as illegal prescription pain pills, fentanyl, and even marijuana.
City officials say the increased number of drugs that were seized are due to a combination of tougher enforcement and an influx of narcotics in the area.
Besides narcotics, the report also showed that local law enforcement executed 76 search warrants, resulting in the seizures of four handguns, two shotguns, two rifles and more than $86,000 in cash during 2014.
