Detroit police seize $2.3 million worth of drugs, arrest 85 people during 2-day violent crime crackdown
DETROIT (FOX 2) - A violent crime crackdown in Detroit led to the seizure of $2.3 million worth of drugs, arrests, and impounded vehicles.
Police launched the two-day-long initiative, called Operation Saniyah, after an 11-year-old girl was shot and killed inside her grandmother's home June 4.
While the drugs have a street value of $2.3 million, that number doesn't include suspected fentanyl that was also found. Once tested and confirmed that it is fentanyl, the narcotic street value bumps up to $4.5 million.
