Among the Baltimore police detectives who went after King was Sgt. Gary Childs, left, and Lt. Joseph Newman. Childs holed up in a camper in East Baltimore to watch the drug deals that would help make the case against King. At the time of his arrest in 1982, it was the biggest drug bust ever made in the city. Police confiscated more than 4 pounds of pure heroin, along with $300,000 cash.
