FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Marijuana seizures made by the Fort Wayne Police Department have seen a significant drop over the last few years.

In 2020, FWPD took 67,843.5 grams of pot off the streets. In 2021, the number dropped to 54,676.9 grams. 32,855 grams were seized in 2022. That’s not even half of what they took off the streets two years prior.

The reason for the decline is pretty simple according to Captain Kevin Hunter from the Vice and Narcotics Bureau at FWPD.

They’ve been much more focused on fentanyl.
