SALT LAKE CITY - Salt Lake Police arrest more than 100 people during a huge operation aimed at cracking down on suspected crack dealers and buyers. The three-day sting happened last week and focused in on an alley near 150 West and 200 South, near the Salt Palace Convention Center. After complaints from area business owners, police worked with merchants to monitor the suspected dealers. Over three nights, undercover officers arrested 73 people for allegedly buying drugs and 35 suspected dealers. Enes Huskic, owner of Toasters Cafe, called police after his customers began complaining about drug activity in the alley next door.
Huskic says he was amazed by the rapid response and the number of arrests. Salt Lake Police Chief, Chris Burbank hopes the sting sends a message to drug dealers and buyers that downtown is heavily monitored for that kind of activity. He's also encouraging local merchants to help police by using a new, confidential hotline: (801) 799-DRUG for anyone who thinks they witnessed suspected drug activity.
