Police arrest over three dozen drug suspects in morning sweep

More than three dozen people and four cars were confiscated Thursday in the latest iteration of the Memphis Police Department's Operation Street Sweep.

The sweep was part of the Memphis Police Department's Blue Crush investigations. 

Officers searched for 41 individuals wanted for selling drugs to undercover police officers.

Memphis Police Director Larry Godwin said some of the men arrested were career criminals.

"We're going to continue to target and go after criminals," Godwin said. "We're going to continue to run eight deep; make it as uncomfortable as we can for the criminal element."

Investigators said the suspects were indicted on charges including possessing and selling crack cocaine, heroine, and hydrocodone.
