Suspect crashes into cruisers in cocaine bust
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – Police in Kalamazoo have made a cocaine bust.

Police say that the drugs have a street value of well over $6,000.
The 33-year-old Kalamazoo man who was arrested faces charges of fleeing and eluding, possession with intent to deliver and malicious destruction of property.
