Pen Lucy raid nets 14 arrests suspected drug seized


Fourteen members of a North Baltimore gang that allegedly sold $8,000 in narcotics daily in the Pen Lucy area were arrested in a raid last night, police said.

Maj. Robert Biemiller, commander of the Northern District, said the raid on a house in the 600 block of Cator Ave. was the result of an undercover effort.

He said that when officers entered the house about 9: 30 p.m., they surprised 14 alleged members of the Old York Road-Cator Avenue Boys, in the kitchen packaging suspected crack cocaine in vials that sold for $20 each.

Biemiller said officers seized 200 vials of the suspected drug, a computer, three handguns and cash. He said those arrested were charged with multiple drug violations.

He said at least five other arrests were expected.
