SHARE 7 arrested in drug sweep around Pioneer Park

The Salt Lake City Police Department's bike squad and narcotics unit teamed up for another drug sweep of the area around Pioneer Park Thursday.

For three hours Thursday afternoon, officers looked for drug dealers in and around the park.

A total of seven people were arrested on felony charges, including drug possession with intent to distribute and arranging a drug sale.

A similar sweep last month, this one conducted at night, resulted in 15 felony arrests, mainly for drug solicitation. — Pat Reavy
