At least 150 officers raided several dwellings in an area bordered by East Preston, East Monument and McDonogh streets and Luzerne Avenue and seized five handguns, $2,000, cocaine, bulletproof vests, handcuffs, ammunition and walkie-talkies. Those arrested were processed at Central Booking and Intake Center. More arrests are expected.
