(KSL News) After years of decline, crack is making a comeback in Utah.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports Narcotics officers have seen an increase in access to the drug, especially in the area of Pioneer Park.
Other cities have not seen a similar increase, although arrests for cocaine and heroin did increase 25 percent between 2005 and 2006.
Some law enforcement experts say the shift can likely be traced to a crackdown on meth labs, making that drug harder to get and leaving a void to be filled by crack.
