Police arrested 60 people in a drug bust Friday in Kensington.

Sixty people were brought into custody by Philadelphia Police on Friday in a major sweep of the city's 25th district, known to be a drug zone for city residents and suburbanites alike. 

According to NBC 10, investigators picked up suspects looking to buy heroin, crack, cocaine and marijuana in parts of North Philly, Kensington, Feltonville, and Hunting Park. In addition to the arrests, 24 vehicles were confiscated as police issued a clear warning. 
"If you think it's a good idea to come to Philadelphia to buy drugs...if you think it's a good idea to come to Philadelphia to sell drugs, you will be arrested. Your vehicle will be confiscated," said Philadelphia Police Insp. Melvin Singleton.

Specifically, police rounded up suspects at five different intersections: Waterloo and West Cambria streets, North Front and West Cambria streets, North Swanson and East Somerset streets, Rosehill and East Cambria streets, and East Tusculum and East Somerset streets. 

A full list of the suspects is available on the NBC 10 report.
