The raids ended a monthlong investigation into suspected drug activity in the neighborhood. The crackdown was prompted by complaints from neighbors in Freetown Village.

Police raided an apartment in the 7800 block of Levy Court about 9 p.m. and seized $75 worth of what tested positive for crack cocaine and marijuana, they said. Rivers and Oliver were arrested there.

Officers then raided a home in the 7600 block of Spencer Road. Police said they recovered 11.5 grams of what subsequently tested positive for crack cocaine and 1.2 grams of what tested positive for marijuana, and arrested Parker, they said.

The last drug raid was at Carter's home in the 7800 block of Willing Court. There, officers said, they confiscated 1.8 grams of powder that tested positive for crack cocaine and arrested Carter and Dorsey.
