FAIRFAX, Va. -

At least 101 people have been arrested, including 30 arrests made on Thursday, in a major 10-month crime operation that targeted the lower portion of Richmond Highway corridor in Fairfax County and into Prince William County.

Fairfax County Police joined Prince William County Police and Virginia State Police in seizing 10 pounds of cocaine, 30 pounds of marijuana, 23 firearms, two shotguns, two bulletproof vests and $560,000 in cash.

Thursday's police action involved a search warrant at a Dollar Depot on Richmond Highway, where police were investigating counterfeiting of DVDs and other merchandise.

Investigators say they used traditional and non-traditional investigative tools, including surveillance by officers on mountain bikes.

The end of the operation coincides with the end of David Rohrer's term as Fairfax County Police Chief after eight years. He begins a new job as deputy county executive for public safety on October 20.
