Too bad I didn't get to see this occur. That would have been wild.
OHOH, I'm glad I'm outta there.

A raid on a Waterford apartment today yielded more than 19 pounds of cocaine and $30,000 in cash.
A drug-sniffing dog found the cocaine hidden in several packages around the apartment, said Sgt. Nick Petranovic of the Waterford Township Police Department.
Police arrested three Waterford men between the ages of 20 and 30 in the raid at the River's Edge apartment complex in the 700 block of Glenbrooke. Three other people were detained briefly, Petranovic said.
Detectives weren't saying much about the investigation that led to the raid. A Spanish-speaking interpreter from the Oakland County Sheriff's Department is helping with ongoing interviews of the three men in custody, and immigration authorities have been notified of the arrests, investigators said.
The street value of the cocaine is estimated at between $1 million and $1.5 million, Petranovic said. No weapons were seized from the apartment.
