Leesburg - 35 year old Tommy Baisden, 35 year old Fredrick Kennedy, and 39 year old Karl "Duke" Kennedy, were arrested Friday night for possession of and trafficking crack cocaine.

Kennedy was caught at a Leesburg home with 49 rocks of crack cocaine. More than $1,000 in cash was also seized, along with cell phones, jewelry, and surveillance equipment.

Police say Duke Kennedy was the largest dealer in Leesburg and they're happy to get him off the streets.

"It's going to make the streets over there a little safer," says Captain Chris Prokesh. "It's going to stop some of the drug flow, at least for a little while."

Leesburg Police, and the Lee County Sheriff's Department Swat Team raided three homes on Magnolia Drive, owned by Tony and Fay Brown, on Friday night.

The men are being held at the Lee County Jail.
