Three men and a woman were being held on multiple drug charges yesterday after being arrested during a raid in the McCulloh Homes community in West Baltimore, city police said.
Detective David Jones of the Western District's drug enforcement unit said the arrests late Thursday followed a monthlong undercover investigation.
Seized were $715, nearly an ounce of crack cocaine, 23 vials of cocaine, packaging materials and a loaded 9 mm Ruger semiautomatic handgun with an obliterated serial number. Two cars were also seized.
Jones said the gun was found inside a tennis shoe in the bedroom. He said one man was cutting cocaine when police entered the dwelling in the 400 block of Oxford Court about 10 p.m. with a search-and-seizure warrant.
