Detroit police arrest 35 in Operation April Shower

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) - The Detroit Police Department carried out 'Operation April Shower' Thursday evening.

FOX 2's Andrea Isom rode along. She reports 35 people were arrested. Thirteen of those arrests were felonies and 22 were for misdemeanors. Marijuana, crack, heroin and weapons were also taken off the street.

As usual, several neighbors came out of their houses and thanked Detroit Police Chief James Craig for the work of the department.

Chief Craig also caught up with Doug, the Detroit crime fighter who blasts suspects on social media. Chief Craig called him a "Detroit hero" and thanked him for his work.

"You know April showers do what?" Chief Craig asks Doug.

"Bring May flowers," Doug responds.

"That's right, and we're going to have a beautiful May," says Chief Craig.
