CHARLOTTE COUNTY--"Operation Clean Street" netted 3 arrests. It all went down a little under an hour ago not too far from where we're at and in quite dramatic fashion.

Officers with the Punta Gorda Police Department swarmed an area they call a hot spot for drug deals.

Two of those arrested in the round up are brothers.. each found with small bags of marijuana.

We're talking about an area in and around 'the Crock Pot' just off US-41 and MLK Boulevard.

Investigators say dealers and buyers loiter outside the supermarket often making sales in broad daylight.

The month long investigation was a direct result of people who live the area that called police asking that something be done.

They provided crucial information including what times these individuals showed up and even where they lived.
