Seven people are arrested, more than 12,000 dollars confiscated, and approximately 215 grams of cocaine is taken off the street.

The arrests come after EPD's month-long investigation. Police say they received word Darrius Thompson was selling drugs, so they tapped his phone.

During that time, officers say Thompson received more than 500 calls and texts concerning cocaine. When police arrested Thompson and several of his contacts, they say they found numerous drugs and cash.
