Krasny said detectives from his department and officers from the Michigan State Police and the Livonia Police Department took part in the raids. He said the raids were made after an extensive period of investigation and a lengthy surveillance of suspects. Initial information on the narcotic traffic in which the six persons arrested are involved carne from undercover officers, Chief Krasny said. The raids were made at an apartment house at 1001 Oakland Ave. and at a private home at 1110 Miner St., the chief said. Cari Breed III, 20, of Grass Lake, arrested at the Oakland Ave. address, was charged with sale of marijuana. Taken into custody at the same address and charged with possession of marijuana were Edward Metry Jr., 26, of Detroit, Gabriel H. Ferris, 20, of Saginaw, Kevin J. McCarthy, 22, of 213 N. Division St. and Bruce L. Gilbert, 19, of 401 Montgomery St. John R. VanStratt, 22, of 1110 Miner St., was arrested at that address and charged with possession of marijuana. Chief Krasny said raiding officers had search warrants when they entered the two dwellings.
