The Last Two Months, Measured in Drugs

Posted by Alex Zielinski on Wed, Mar 28, 2012 at 2:44 PM

Just a few of the pot plants snagged by the police this year.

The Portland Police Bureau released the total number of drug seizures in the first two months of 2012 today. The results?

— 32 grams of powder cocaine
— 30 grams of crack cocaine
— 3,356 grams of heroin (7.4 pounds)
— 807 grams of methamphetamine
— 89,239 grams of dried marijuana (196 pounds)
— 1,178 marijuana plants
— a grand total of $2.7 million (street value, of course) in narcotics and over $130,000 in cash

Whack. According to Sergeant Pete Simpson, these totals blow last year's January/February tallies out of the water, due to the bureau's Drug and Vice Division's focus on a larger investigation.
