Police officers posing as drug dealers near Baltimore's O'Donnell Heights neighborhood last night arrested 12 people, including a 17-year-old, on charges of trying to purchase crack cocaine.
Undercover officers set up for business in the 1700 block of Nome St. between 7: 30 p.m. and 11 p.m. As people tried to purchase crack cocaine, they were directed down an alley and arrested, said Lt. George L. Klein Jr. of the city's Southeastern District.
The 17-year-old, a male, was taken to the juvenile lockup at the Northern District. The others, including two women, were being held at the Central Booking and Intake Center.
Klein said those arrested are from O'Donnell Heights, Dundalk and Essex.
