DPD On High After Record Drug Busts

DPD On High After Record Drug Busts
Police Seize More Than $15 Million In Drugs In Past 2 Months

DETROIT - The Detroit Police Department has seized a record amount of narcotics, marijuana and drug money in the past few months.

The latest bust of nearly a kilo of cocaine from a home has the police department experiencing its own high: a record-setting number of drug busts in a two-month span.

The department has gotten more than $15 million of drugs off the streets and out of the hands of drug dealers.


"The significance of it is that you're going after quantity mid-level dealers. You're going down the distribution chain, and sometimes you've upset a lot of activity," said Detroit Police Chief Warren Evans.

The latest bust was made when officers responded to a domestic abuse call at a residence.

"It wasn't a narcotics raid; these were two guys, in a scout car, who responded to domestic violence, and that became something better," said Evans.

In November, DPD made several large drug busts. The first was during a traffic stop. Officers discovered 20 pounds of packaged marijuana in a vehicle. The driver was found a short time later hiding in a car a few blocks away.

About $662,000 in suspected drug money was found Nov. 9 in a duffel bag after a tip on narcotics activity at a Detroit motel.

Also in November, DPD made one of the biggest drug busts in decades: 14 kilograms of cocaine, which is worth an estimated $6 million.

More than $200,000 in cash was also found in that drug bust.

A few days later, 5 kilograms of cocaine was confiscated and a man was arrested in what police said was a related case. A kilogram is 2.2 pounds.

Not long after, 1,300 marijuana plants were confiscated from a grow operation inside of a home.

Evans said the busts do have one negative impact on the community.

"On the other side of it, once it gets disrupted and paranoia sets in -- who snitched on me -- and then sometimes you get a spike of violence," he said.

Despite the accomplishment, Evans said the department's work is far from over.

"At the end of the day, it's citizens' participation. I am not really seeing that yet, but I'm hoping the significant seizure will change the way they see the department does business," said Evans.

"better?"

I suppose some could call it that. :blankbubble:

dude so they actually got a lot more than you think off the streets. That 14 kilos was actually 30 lbs.

now that the streets are clean maybe Dtown will get its act together and stop falling apart.
