PONTIAC, Mich. – The Oakland County Narcotic Enforcement Team (NET) launched an investigation into a residence in the 30 block of Dakota Street -- and into an illegal underground rave club, which had been operating at 125 N. Saginaw in Pontiac.

On Aug. 27, detectives obtained a search warrant for the Dakota Street residence. Officers uncovered 124.9 grams of cocaine, 118.9 grams of ketamine, 6.6 grams of cocaine found within a truck belonging to the homeowner, safes containing cocaine, ketamine, and US currency, scales, processing materials including mixers and presses, cutting agents, packaging material, and $7,555 in US currency.

Two arctic foxes were also found being held in the backyard and turned over to Oakland County Animal Control.

Police said information found at the Dakota Street residence led to them discovering the underground rave club on Saginaw Street. When detectives got a search warrant and searched the club, they found one gram of cocaine, a 12-gauge Mossberg shotgun in a guitar case, processing materials including acetone, sifters, packaging materials, and vials.

The business was known as the Uptown Music Club, and didn’t have a business license to operate either.
