WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.-- Ten people are behind bars after an undercover drug sting in a West Palm Beach neighborhood. They are all facing charges of drug possession and intent to sell cocaine and heroin.

Operation Place Your Order started four months ago at the request of community members concerned about illegal drug activity in the historic Northwest Neighborhood.

"10 is a good number. It's not everybody. We have active warrants for right now this operation so we are still looking for people that are, that are on that list in this specific operation," said West Palm Beach Police Chief Sarah Mooney.
