SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - After drug busts on two Shreveport streets, narcotics agents arrested a dozen more people who later showed up to buy drugs.

Over the past month, agents with the Caddo/Shreveport Narcotics Unit and SPD VICE Unit made several drug buys in the 400 block of Woodrow and 1200 block of Oakland.

On Thursday, agents served search warrants for the drug locations, then undercover officers played the role of drug dealer to people who came by throughout the day to buy drugs.

In all, agents made 45 felony arrests and two misdemeanor arrests. They seized cocaine, marijuana and almost $2,000 in drug money. The street value of all the drugs taken was almost $3,500.
