Undercover drug bust, several arrested

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A number of suspected drug dealers were caught off guard Tuesday morning. Several men were taken into custody after being arrested at a home located at 214 Idlewood Drive in Jackson.  

 The Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration also known as the DEA led the drug bust. Several other federal agencies, plus the Jackson Police Department helped out with the undercover sting.

"It's a very safe neighborhood you know its little things that go on, but I would never think a drug bust would happen so its kind of shocking to me," said Jackson resident Jonisha Williams.

WLBT is waiting on a call back from the U.S. Attorney's Office and will have the latest details on the arrests this afternoon.
