Allentown, PA (AP) -- Police responding to a domestic disturbance call in Allentown, Pennsylvania, didn't find any disturbance, but they didn't go away empty handed.
While they were waiting for a warrant to search the building, they saw a man stick money through a curtained window into a first-floor apartment, allegedly to buy crack cocaine.
They arrested him and stayed put.
Over the next four hours, a steady stream of people appeared at the ramshackle house.
By the time the impromptu sting ended, nine men and a woman had been arrested and charged with attempting to possess crack cocaine.
Police chief roger MacLean says, "it was like the gift that keeps giving."
