Federal agents, police arrest 14 in drug raids


Federal drug agents and police from the city and Baltimore County staged coordinated raids at 26 residences yesterday, arresting 14 people on drug and weapon charges.

Seized in the 5:30 a.m. raids were more than $100,000, several firearms and crack cocaine, said Detective Donny Moses, a city police spokesman.

In a raid on a house in the 500 block of McMechen St., police found a loaded semiautomatic handgun hidden under the mattress of a child's bed, Moses said.

The raids resulted from a lengthy undercover drug investigation in the city's Upton area and sections of the county, Moses said.
