DETROIT (WWJ) – Drugs, money, weapons. All the elements of a drug raid. The raid turned into a million-dollar drug bust in the city of Detroit, and the drug of choice was marijuana.

That’s what police found, armed with a search warrant, when they searched a house on Burwood, in Detroit. Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon tells WWJ, officers raided the house and found nearly 100 marijuana plants, worth about one-million dollars on the street.

“We confiscated a few thousand dollars in cash, a shotgun and our search is continuing at this point,” says Napoleon.

Sheriff Napoleon says they also made one arrest, with more possible.

And he has a message for drug dealers in metro Detroit: “The message is very clear, we’re here, we’re going after these major operations and we’re not going anywhere.”
