MCALLEN - Three suspected street-level drug dealers face charges.
Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino says his deputies along with the help of McAllen police made the arrests late Friday afternoon at La Copa Inn at 10th and Houston in McAllen. All three suspects are expected to go before a judge Saturday.
Last year, the sheriff's office arrested more than 650 street-level drug dealers. Trevino calls it a priority for his department because the local dealers sell to local addicts who often commit thefts, burglaries and other crimes.
