Two brothers were arrested and a third was being sought after drug raids Tuesday at three Forest Park dwellings.

Seized in the raids were an estimated $184,000 worth of heroin and cocaine, $4,700 in cash, a .30-caliber rifle, a .45-caliber semiautomatic handgun, ammunition, jewelry, cell phones, pagers and a computer believed to contain drug sales records, police said.

The raids - in the 5300 block of Norwood Ave., 3800 block of Ferndale Ave. and 3000 block of Fendall Ave. - followed two weeks of undercover work by members of the Northern District's drug enforcement unit, including purchases of cocaine and heroin, said its head, Sgt. Troy Cooper.

Charged with multiple drug offenses were Eddie Tarver, 63, and Ronald Tarver, 54, both of the 5300 block of Norwood, who were in custody, and Melvin Allen Tarver, 48, also of the Norwood address, who drives a 1993 Ford van with tags M449701 and was being sought, police said.
