Man Suspected of Dealing Heroin in Village

The City of Grosse Pointe police arrested a man in the Village after receiving a tip he was completing hand-to-hand transactions. The man had heroin packaged for sale in his pockets.

police arrested a man in the Village for possession of heroin after receiving an anonymous call about him completing "hand to hand" transactions with young men in front of a sporting goods store about 10:15 p.m. July 24.

A responding officer found the man matching the description given by the anonymous caller and approached him, according to a report. The man began walking away and then got on a bike to begin riding away after the officer instructed him to stop so they could talk.

The officer caught him after he began pedaling, got him to the ground and handcuffed him. He asked the man why he did not follow his instructions, to which he replied that he had not done anything wrong, according to a report.

During the investigation, officers found 25 empty "dime bags" in the man's backpack. Later they found five packaged bundles of heroin in his pocket.

He was arrested and the case was turned over to the detectives. Information about the man's age or place of residence was not available. 

Patch is awaiting additional information on the case.

Sad, but it's here. GP has been pretty good cleaning out houses and bars where this has gone on for yrs. If something doesn't "look right" report it. Too many cars coming and going at a flat. Odd folks on the street, doing odd things. NO, you won't look silly if it's nothing.Once saw two folks walking down my street carrying a large TV. Called--it simply looked strange. Nothing had happened but cops said Thanks and didn't laugh at me.

Mark, good point. Since when did the kids start chasing the dragon? The only French Connection I wish to have in GP is in the historical context.

Black Tar isn't just for the roof of Jacobson's anymore.

I don't think that there's any dealers with tar around here, thank god.

Chasing rainbows to a vacant house on the water maybe, but the Dragon must be slain.
