Troopers search Inkster site

Michigan State Police Troopers executed a search warrant at an Inkster location last Thursday, leading to several arrests on drug charges.

According to police reports, several people in Wayne County were taken into custody in connection with an investigation of alleged fentanyl trafficking.

Four search warrants were executed at locations in Detroit, Hamtramck, Taylor and Inkster, according to the prepared statement.

The searches led to the seizure of more than 1.2 kilograms of fentanyl, 54 grams of cocaine and 32 grams of Methoxetamine, a drug similar to PCP, state police said. Police also recovered one firearm and $48,910 in cash.

Officials did not release the addresses of the locations involved in the search or the specific amounts of drugs or cash located at the separate addresses of the raids.

The arrests follow a months-long investigation involving the Metro Narcotics Enforcement Team, according to Michigan State Police. The multijurisdictional narcotics task force includes state, local and federal officers, several from area police departments.

According to police, criminal charges are pending against those arrested.
