"We have to try to keep a lid on activity. If not, things will get bad, people will get killed and get hurt behind street level drugs," says investigator Clarence Pearson with the Quincy Police Department.
That was the motivation behind Tuesday morning's drug raids. WCTV captured exclusive video as agents brought Ronterrius Moore in on drug charges. Also arrested is Antonio Denson. Quincy police say the two were operating drug houses.
On the evidence table was everything officers say they confiscated including crack cocaine, marijuana, powder cocaine, cash, a firearm and other drug paraphernalia.
"We got numerous complaints from the neighbors, complaints from citizens. The citizens aren't going to stand for this activity and neither are we," says Pearson.
Tameicka Bradwell's home is where officers caught up with Denson... she says she's upset about how the raid was executed. "I don't appreciate how they came up in my house and how they threw my boyfriend down on the ground."
She says her mother, who suffers from high blood pressure, was awakened out of her sleep with a gun in her face. "They was wrong and now my mom's in the emergency room. That's wrong they should have did that a better way," says Bradwell.
Belinda Berry who lives next door to Densons' girlfriend says, "There was a lot of screaming and it probably frightened her, especially being and elderly lady. There were elderly people in the home so I really do feel for them."
But investigators say putting Denson and Moore behind bars makes the streets of Quincy a little bit safer.
Both Denson and Moore are charged with drug trafficking, operating a drug house among other charges.
Quincy Police say they have a long list of other suspected dealers they plan to track down to make their community drug free
