Police Make Biggest Drug Raid In Warren History

WARREN, Mich. - Warren police have staged what they're calling the biggest drug raid in the Detroit suburb's history.

The raid on Friday shut down a drug-selling operation that was frequented by students from several local high schools, among others.

Police Commissioner Jere Green said the operation simultaneously targeted four apartments and included 40 officers from Warren's SWAT and narcotics teams.

"We did not get the mother load here," said Green. "What we did was we took out an organized street-level drug organization. We took them out of business. It was an open-air drug sales market at that apartment complex."

A number of arrests were made, and drugs and guns were seized.

The alleged operation was within walking distance of City Hall.

Lt. Darcy Leutzinger tells The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens the place was under surveillance for the past two months, and residents living in the area had complained to police about the illegal activity that led to the arrests.
