Two more persons were arrested on narcotics charges yesterday as the Ann Arbor Pólice Department continued a drug probe which was launched Tuesday by three raids in the city. Michael V. Policht, 19, and Nina Marie Forrester, 21, were taken into custody on charges of sale of LSD. While both suspects told pólice they have "no permanent address," the address given for both on the arrest warrants was 708 Arch St., headquarters for the underground newspaper, The Ann Arbor Argus. Two of three arrests in the raids on Tuesday were made at the Argus fices. The paper is affiliated with the White Panther Party. Policht and Miss Forrester were arraigned yesterday before District Court Judge S. J. Elden who granted them an adjournment until Jan. 25 to consult an attorney. At that time they will either demand District Court examination on the charges or waive that hearing and be bound to Circuit Court for trial. Judge Elden set bonds for Policht and Miss Forrester at $10,000 each, and when they were unable to post the bonds they were remanded to the County Jail. Policht has relatives near Chelsea and Miss Forrester is from Muskegon, arresting officers said. The three persons arrested during Tuesday's raids have posted bonds of $7,500 each and have been released. Cheryl Ann Rasch, 20, of 1101 Church St. is charged with the sale of LSD. Wilson P. Tanner III, 17, of the Argus headquarters is charged with sale of marijuana. Douglas W. Connelly, 18, of the same Aren address, is charged with sale of LSD and sale of marijuana. The three were among 14 persons taken into custody in the three raids. Eleven other persons were released after questioning. Pólice Chief Walter E. Krasny said his department's probe of the) alleged narcotics traffic in the three houses raided on Tuesday is continuing.
