Undercover detectives continue good work in area

South and Hermitage Precinct Detectives, who work parts of Antioch as well as other areas of Nashville, were busy with 32 arrests as a result of investigations last week.

In addition to the arrests, they seized cocaine, heroin, pills (155 illegal pills), some marijuana, a couple of guns and more than $3,000 in cash.

Last weeks, investigations focused on Murfreesboro Pike, Elberta Street, Hartford Drive, Lebanon Pike, Lynmeade Drive, Norwalk Drive, Bell Road, Priest Woods Drive, Blackwood Drive, Heney Drive, and Lafayette Street, so not all the busts were in Antioch proper.
