VANCOUVER, Wash. — Vancouver police say a three-month investigation at the city’s Maplewood neighborhood resulted in the arrest of 19 people.

Police focused on an eight-unit apartment complex and adjoining home. They say their investigation revealed a constant stream of drug sales, gang activity and prostitution in that neighborhood.
They served search warrants for five of the eight apartments and the house and arrested 19 people.
