COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - Undercover police made multiple arrests Thursday night for trafficking in prescription narcotics.

The busts are the result of an eight-month long investigation by the Covington Police Department, Bureau of Strategic Services and the Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force.

Many of the arrests were conducted around the All American Cafe.

Covington resident Tiffany Bright says she's glad Covington police made the arrests around the bar. She works at the daycare across the street, and often takes kids to the park nearby.

"That bar needs to be shut down," she said. "I saw at least ten, at least ten people handcuffed, out sitting in front of the bar."

Police are holding a press conference Friday afternoon to discuss the bust. will update this story as more information becomes available.
