Video released as DEA officials make arrests around So. Fla.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (WSVN) -- An exclusive video captured by 7News showed a crime crackdown targeting hot spots around South Florida neighborhoods.
The video captured a sample of the arrests made throughout South Florida, Wednesday morning. The location seen on video is a Miami Gardens neighborhood. Officers from several agencies were on the scene including the Drug Enforcement Administration
The video has been blurred because there are a number of undercover officers who were working the operation.
7News was told the crime takedown was a long-term investigation into drugs and illegal firearms.
In the video, a man is seen being taken into custody. The DEA has not released any names of those arrested on Wednesday.
Concerned neighbor Eugene Thomas said, "Given what you just told me, yeah, that would be legitimate cause for concern. I'm not sure what the issue was, why they were there or who they were investigating."
The DEA has not released certain information, but they did say that arrests took place throughout South Florida, and in the course of the arrests, they confiscated $40,000 in cash, a small amount of drugs and one firearm.
More information will be released to the public when the suspects appear in court.
