GARY — The Gary SWAT team and Narcotics-Drug Unit raided Latez Stemley’s home at 300 Johnson St. on Wednesday night.

Stemley, who is on probation for a prior drug-related arrest, is being held pending new charges, police said.

Police arranged for controlled buys of crack cocaine from Stemley before obtaining a search warrant. During the raid, police found about $440, a digital scale and marijuana.

Stemley was charged with maintaining a common nuisance, a felony, in July and pleaded guilty March 11, court records show. He is serving a one-year probation on a reduced misdemeanor charge.
