City Police Arrest 14 People Associated With 2 Separate Drug Organizations
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A major drug bust in Northwest Baltimore.
Police arrested 14 people associated with two separate drug organizations in the Belvedere Corridor.
Since 2010, the dense, four-block area has seen 16 homicides and 17 non-fatal shootings.
Raid teams recovered a loaded gun, heroin, cocaine, marijuana and more than $1,000 in cash.
“This is latest in a growing number of strategic and collaborative investigations targeting drug organizations so frequently associated with the violent crime in our city. By taking down these outfits root to branch, we are fighting to restore neighborhoods to their rightful owners: the residents trying to live there in peace,” State’s Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein said.
Police say one of the organizations sold “Hellraiser” brand heroin. The other sold “Rick Ross” heroin.
