PHOENIX (AP) -

A crime sweep in central Phoenix has resulted in 180 arrests along with the seizure of 18 guns, $830,000 in cash and nearly 1,000 pounds of drugs.

Phoenix police released the results of "Operation High Tide" on Wednesday.

The department's special units such as vice partnered with five other state and county agencies in the sweep.

The 42-hour operation kicked off April 19.

More than 100 law enforcement personnel were out on the street at any given time.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety and the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office were among the agencies to participate.

Police say another operation is expected sometime later this year in Phoenix.

    Milstead said the trooper in the video appears to be using "the least amount of force possible because no one wants to be the next viral video on one of your news stations." The DPS director said the current climate makes for a difficult time in law enforcement but he has hope because of people like Tom, one of the two men who helped with the arrest.
