Police have just wrapped up a drug round-up in the Williams Park area of downtown St. Petersburg.
Narcotics officers started the investigation back in January.
Complaints began rolling in about the number of illegal drug sales and drug use in the downtown area.
Sixteen people have been arrested so far, and police are still looking for eight others.
Officers say most of the suspects are homeless and sold narcotics, marijuana and spice.
Three people were arrested before the round-up began this morning when they tried to sell drugs to undercover detectives.
Police are still looking to arrest at least eight more people in connection with the roundup.
