Well, that's what you get for pushing crack on a man with a mustache sitting behind the wheel of a Crown Vic:

About 100 undercover officers from the gang task force and the narcotics division arrested 104 suspects in the week ending on Saturday. The officers made the arrests after buying heroin, crack cocaine, methamphetamine and other drugs in the Tenderloin, South of Market and Mission districts.

"We're trying to rescue the community from these indiscriminate and brazen drug sales," said Deputy Chief Morris Tabak. "And it's making a difference."

The police claim more crackdowns are coming, but won't say where or when -- which seems an intelligent strategy.
