Police arrested 70 suspects Wednesday morning wrapping up a months-long undercover operation involving two agents that targeted drug and weapons trafficking. Among the suspects were convicts, a minor, three women and known members of criminal organizations.

During the course of the undercover investigation, two agents - one ex-con and one police officer - conducted drug and weapons deals throughout the country stretching from Eilat in the South to Nazareth in the North. The operation began while the convict, a resident of one of the northern villages, was still in prison and continued after he was released.
