Authorities arrest 10 people in drug warrant roundup

The Hattiesburg police Department in collaboration with the Drug Enforcement Agency arrested 10 individuals Wednesday morning as part of an early sting operation to clean the streets of Hattiesburg. 

Along with finding cocaine in the shoe of one man, authorities also were confronted at a residence by a suspect with a handgun. 

The operation's goal was to target 21 suspects who had outstanding warrants in the community, and those suspected of selling controlled substances.
