More than 500 marijuana plants, large quantities of processed marijuana and several weapons were seized when law enforcement agencies raided private businesses, homes and four warehouses, the Michigan State Police announced today.
After a seven-month investigation into marijuana trafficking, MSP’s Western Wayne Narcotics team — with assistance from several federal and local agencies, as well as the Michigan Attorney General’s Office — executed 22 search warrants in Wayne, Oakland, Washtenaw and Jackson counties, according to a news release.
Several people were taken into custody, police said.
According to police, an Ypsilanti Township home that exploded Sunday was part of the investigation. The explosion occurred in the 1300 block of Gattengo. Officials said a woman and a baby escaped without injury, and a man was taken to a hospital for treatment.
According to MSP, a number of agencies assisted: The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; ATF Combined Violent Reduction Partnership; FBI; Western Wayne Special Operations Team; Michigan State Police Emergency Support Team; Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office; the police departments in Livonia, Northville Township and Plymouth Township; and the Canton Township Department of Public Safety.
