LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A new report by the L.A. Metro system shows a significant spike in crime from year to year.
In February, crimes on the Metro rose 21% when compared to the previous February.
And, the biggest increase in crime was from drug use.
Law enforcement agencies reported a total of 50 drug incidents in February, compared to just five the year before.
The Metro says the increase in arrests is due to the recent increase in patrols.
