The U.S. attorney's office said 11 people have been named in three indictments for drug and firearm offenses in North Little Rock, particularly in the Dixie Addition.

The arrests grew out of Operation Dixie Days, a federal-city effort in 2014 and 2015.

Customers entered the front door by day and knock at a back bedroom window at night. In October 2015, officers saw 14 people walk up to the window after midnight over the course of one hour.

"We hope the peaceful neighbors of the Dixie Addition will rest better tonight knowing both that their community is safer and that federal and state authorities will continue their law enforcement efforts in Dixie Addition and throughout North Little Rock," U.S. Attorney Chris Thyer said in a prepared statement.
