Dawson-- More than a dozen suspected drug dealers are arrested in Dawson.

Agents say US Highway 82, that runs through the heart of Dawson, is a drug vein. For the past 10 months, undercover officers with the Pataula Judicial Circuit bought marijuana, cocaine and crack from 25 dealers in Dawson.

Some of those buys happened in streets right off US 82.  Commander Mark Pro says, "We actually made buys all over the city. We can't really say it is one particular block because it is not, it is all over."

16 people were arrested on drug charges.  Agents are still searching for nine more accused dealers.
