Hahahaha I saw the "Drug arrest. Westbard Avenue at Massachusetts Avenue.". They had what looked liked a young white kid (high school to early college) in handcuffs sitting on curb on Westbard. They also had about four other cop cars present. Maybe two officers searching through the car. My first reaction was, it must be a drub bust!

4 cop cars for a drug arrest? Either the kid was one hell of a kingpin or Westbard has too many police assigned to it.

Most DUI arrests use 3 police cars.

Well, a DUI arrest is both more serious and more complex than a drug possession charge, yes?

Looks like it was a major drug bust with the FEDS requesting assistance from MoCo police according to Dyer's most recent report.

These days, it's more for police protection. Does MCPD use body cameras?
