ANNISTON, Ala. (AP) - Anniston authorities have arrested 50
people suspected in drug crimes.

In a coordinated sweep of the city, police began knocking on

drug-related warrants.

Anniston police Lt. Chris Roberson said local and federal authorities were involved in the roundup.

Most of the suspects were charged with unlawful distribution of
a controlled substance.

The arrests follow a string of undercover drug purchases in the last few months, many of which were caught on video.
