The Geneva Police Department says a two day operation resulted in nine arrests.

Police say 61-year-old Albert Slaughter, 36-year-old Juan Carlos Ortiz, 22-year-old Donnie Woody, 29-year-old Mark Spencer Junior, 21-year-old Jose A. Concepcion-Flores, 20-year-old Steven Cruz-Figueroa, 32-year-old Steven Sciarabba were all arrested for criminal sale of a controlled substance.

Officers also arrested 19-year-old Syriena Vazquez for obstructing governmental administration and 32-year-old Armeal Whitfield who was wanted on a warrant.

The arrests were all a result of "Operation Clean Sweep" which officers say is an offensive against street level drug dealers in Geneva.

Police say two more arrests were made following the operation.
