RAIDS NET GUNS, DRUGS, VEHICLES AND $13,000

Raids conducted by five agencies of the V.I. government Thursday and Friday, dubbed "Operation Apache," resulted in 14 arrests and the confiscation of four vehicles, four guns, drug paraphernalia, assorted ammunition, an undetermined quantity of crack-cocaine, cocaine, and marijuana, and $13,000 in cash.
Acting Police Commissioner Franz A. Christian Sr. said the raids were aimed at stemming the flow of drugs on the streets, according to the Daily News.
Operation Apache had been in the works for some time. Christian attributed its success to surveillance, undercover activities, hard work and cooperation.
