(Oakland County Sheriff’s Dept, Sept. 4, 2015)

Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Narcotic Enforcement Team (NET) conducted a month long investigation into a heroin operation that was distributing large quantities of the drug throughout Oakland County.

NET members executed a search warrant on August 18th, at the 1200 block of Waterford Court, in Rochester Hills. During the investigation, NET recovered 939 grams of heroin, 10 grams of marijuana, 15 grams of cocaine, two loaded handguns, drug packaging and chazzano game adparaphernalia, and U.S. currency. The street value of the heroin is estimated between $300,000 and $400,000.

Christopher Dukes, a 32-year-old resident of Rochester Hills, was arrested as a result of the investigation. The Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office has charged Dukes with one count of Delivery/Manufacture a Controlled Substance from 450 grams to 999 grams, a 30-year felony, and one count of Felony Firearm, a 2-year felony.

“With the harmful effects that heroin has had on our communities, I am proud of the diligence and investigatory work of the Narcotic Enforcement Team for taking a large amount of drugs out of the hands of Oakland County residents,” said Sheriff Michael J. Bouchard. “We will continue to place a priority on eradicating heroin and dangerous narcotics off our streets.”

Dukes was arraigned on August 19th at 52-3 District Court in front of Magistrate Melinda Balian and was given a $150,000 cash/surety, no 10% bond. He is currently out on bond. His next court appearance is for a preliminary exam on Tuesday, September 8th, at 8:30 am at seed020_heather_coleman_voss52-3 District Court in front of Judge Nancy Carniak. Dukes does not have a prior criminal history.
