FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - After an eight-month investigation in Frederick, police have arrested 15 people thought to be working in an organized group in connection with drug activity.
The Frederick News-Post reports 14 adults and one juvenile were arrested for drug activity in the area of South and Madison streets. The investigation resulted in 10 search-and-seizure warrants. Six guns were confiscated, along with crack cocaine, powder cocaine, marijuana, heroin and Ecstasy.
