Can we believe the validity of ANY "drug arrest" stories in Benton Harbor"

Ok, so Andrew Collins, drug-planter extraordinaire, is behind bars. Everyone knows the BHPD is corrupt, and Collins wasn't the only one. Just 2 week ago, approximately 6 BH cops with dogs forced occupants of a house into the yard while they "searched" the house.
All were eventually allowed back in - cops said no drugs were found. But, cops re-entered with the occupants and "happened" to notice crumbs of some variety of drug on the refrigerator. An occupant stated that it would be a foolish place to put them because of heat from the refrigerator. 3 of the occupants were taken to Darth Vader's castle, the Berrien County Courthouse, and charged.

Drug raid nets four arrests

2/12/09 H-P

BENTON HARBOR - An investigation of alleged drug trafficking at ********* St. led to the arrest of four people Wednesday morning, Berrien County sheriff's officers reported.
Sgt. Robert Boyce of the sheriff's Narcotics Unit said the arrests were made after police served a search warrant at the address and found suspected marijuana with a street value of $850 and other drug evidence.
Those arrested, who all live in the house, were booked at the Berrien County jail.
They are: ***********, charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana and maintaining a drug house, both second offenses; ************, marijuana possession and maintaining a drug house; **********, marijuana possession; and **********, marijuana possession and an outstanding warrant alleging contempt of court.
Boyce said the search warrant was obtained after a two-week investigation prompted by citizen complaints about drug activity at the house.
At the time the search warrant was served, ********* attempted to flee out a second story window but was apprehended by police, Boyce said.
The other three suspects were inside the residence.
