Three suspected drug houses were raided and 10 people were arrested in a big drug sweep in El Mirage Wednesday morning.
El Mirage police, along with SWAT teams from DPS and MCSO served search warrants at three homes in the area.
Two homes were next door to each other; a third home was right across the street.
DPS believes the homes were sites of alleged gang, drug and prostitution activities.
"Especially in a smaller community, any time you can shut down three drug houses is phenomenal," said one DPS detective. "It's a huge impact in the community."
