KODIAK -

Kodiak police have seized illegal drugs with an estimated value of $120,000.
    
KMXT-radio reports police Sunday seized 76 grams of suspected black tar heroin, 28 grams of Afghan brown heroin, 42 grams of crack cocaine and smaller amounts of methamphetamine and powder cocaine.
    
Kodiak Police Chief Ronda Wallace says the investigation began when officers contacted two people acting suspiciously in downtown Kodiak.
    
She says one was a parole violator from Anchorage.
    
After discovering one person was carrying drug paraphernalia, officers obtained a search warrant and found the drugs in two hotel rooms.
    
Wallace says heroin use is increasing in Kodiak. She says outside sellers have recognized the demand for drugs and are coming to the island with supplies.
    
A second person arrested was from Missouri.
