BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) --The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the number of drug-related arrests increased by 100 in the state last year.
Troopers made 913 arrests in 2013. That's up from just more than 800 in 2012.
Patrol Sgt. Tom Iverson says troopers have put more K-9 units in the western part of the state, which likely has contributed to the growing number of drug arrests.
The largest drug bust of the year was about 15 pounds of marijuana, which was seized in the southeast region of the state.
