HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Undercover operations by the Huntington Police Department ended with 40 arrests warrants and 21 people behind bars.

According to a release from HPD, the Special Emphasis Unit with HPD started making undercover drug purchases and prostitution stings back in January.

After more than six months of work, investigators were able to obtain arrest warrants for 40 people and search warrants for two homes in town.
