ORLANDO, Fla. - There is a heavy police presence at the TymberSkan condominiums on Rio Grande Avenue Thursday.

Deputies said the incident is part of a drug raid, and they have made several arrests.

WFTV was at the scene as narcotics agents served arrest warrants Thursday.

They had five warrants to serve and WFTV saw four people taken away.

An agent said they're doing it to “clean up what's left of the area.”

The Orange County Sheriff's Office said it has been to the complex more than 1,700 in one year, and 500 were felony crimes.

The county said it hopes to fix some of the crime issues by tearing down some of buildings that have a lot of structural problems and begin redeveloping the area.
