Cocaine, marijuana, heroin and pills were confiscated with a total street value of $720,699.
"These examples of excellent investigative and proactive policing exemplify the hard work that our officers perform every day, with the assistance of law enforcement partners, the citizens and Crime Stoppers, state Chief Godbee. "We as a city must continue to be determined to erase the violence, and bring about a safer Detroit. On behalf o the men and women of the DPD, I hope that these arrests will bring some closure for these families."
