ANCHORAGE - Drug arrests are up in Anchorage and police say it's because of a greater focus on street-level dealers.
Police arrested 675 people on drug charges between September and February - almost doubling the number from the same period three years earlier.
Police say the shift to street-level drugs means its investigators are not duplicating work done by the Drug Enforcement Administration, which goes after major traffickers.
