S.F. police net 104 suspected drug dealers

Undercover officers arrested 104 suspected drug dealers during a weeklong operation that ended Saturday in San Francisco’s Tenderloin and Mission districts, police said Tuesday.

The San Francisco Police Department’s Gang Task Force and Narcotics Division said undercover officers, some from visiting departments, arrested the suspects after purchasing various drugs from them such as heroin, crack cocaine and methamphetamine.

The districts were targeted because of violence there stemming from street drug sales, police said.

In October, an undercover operation arrested 103 suspected drug dealers in the Market Street and Mission district areas, police said.
