PONTIAC, Mich. (WXYZ) — The Oakland County Sheriff's Office Narcotic Enforcement Team (NET) announced Monday that an investigation in Pontiac led to the seizure of drugs, money and arctic foxes.

According to the sheriff's office, they conducted a search at the home on Dakota St. on Aug. 27. Inside the home, they found 124.9 grams of cocaine, 118.9 grams of ketamine, 6.6 grams of cocaine in a truck, safes with cocaine, ketamine, U.S. currency, scales, processing materials, cutting agents, packing materials and more than $7,000.

In the backyard, agents also found two arctic foxes that were turned over to Oakland County Animal Control.

According to the sheriff's office, they found that there was also an illegal underground rave club that had been operating on N. Saginaw St.

“With overdoses still on the rise especially with cocaine, I am proud of our Detectives from NET for bringing both their illegal drug dealing and illegal club to an end,” said Sheriff Michael J. Bouchard. “Drugs have no boundaries and these dealers surely had an impact on all communities throughout the county. Hopefully, their boundaries will soon be within the confines of a jail cell for their actions.”

Three people were arrested and charged in the case.
