Federal, state and local law enforcement agents swept out in an area of Hartford around Pope Park and Trinity College Thursday morning.  Hartford police say they were executing warrants,  but  there were no details  available about the nature of the operation. An FBI spokesman says the operation was carried out by the “Northern Connecticut V iolent Crimes  Task Force as part of a drug crackdown.      Suspects will be presented in federal court today.

Multi-jurisdictional operations in the state recently targeted two drug rings operating in southeastern Connecticut,  and convicted criminals in this country illegally.

Hartford police suggested that drivers avoid streets around Park and Zion  and York and Zion  because of the police activity.
