Police arrest 10 on drug charges in series of raids


Police raided 15 dwellings in three sections of Baltimore yesterday afternoon and evening and arrested at least 10 people charged in warrants and grand jury indictments with narcotics violations.

Sgt. Scott Rowe, a police spokesman, said officers seized suspected cocaine worth $5,000, a 9 mm handgun, a 1998 Ford Expedition sport utility vehicle and $3,500.

Rowe said "Operation South Park" occurred in West, Southwest and Southern Baltimore between 2 p.m. and 9 p.m. He said the raids were the result of a two-month investigation by undercover officers assigned to the drug enforcement division of drug trafficking and gun-related violence.

Those arrested were being held at the Central Booking and Intake Center, pending bail hearings.
