JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Juneau police say officers seized an increased amount of heroin and methamphetamine in 2014 over the amount seized the previous year.

KTOO (https://is.gd/kpx1x5) reports 4.7 kilograms and 3.6 kilos of meth were seized last year.

That’s seven times the amount of heroin seized in 2013 and almost five times the amount of meth seized.

Lt. Kris Sell says the amount of hard drugs on the street probably didn’t change, but some high profile busts accounted for bigger chunks of the supply.

Altogether, all illegal drugs seized in Juneau in 2014 totaled more than $5.7 million. That compares with the nearly $2 million seized the previous year.
