A dozen drug dealers found themselves behind bars after a police crackdown, police in New York said.
Brooklyn Police said that twelve people, who allegedly sold cocaine, heroin and other drugs 120 times to undercover officers, were put out of business.
The Crown Heights drug dealers were very active near schools.
The police investigation began more than a year ago, police said.
During the investigation, the drug dealers sold cocaine and other drugs near Middle School 394, inside apartment building hallways.
The defendants face lengthy prison sentences if convicted.
