In addition to 101 arrests, Weary said officers served 32 warrants, seized eight vehicles and three guns and confiscated $2,244. In addition, police seized more than 8 pounds of marijuana, 2 grams of cocaine, 2 grams of crack cocaine, half a gram of methamphetamine and 23 pills.
Weary said eight arrests were gang-related.
