Chicago police say they have shut down an open-air drug market on the city's West Side.The investigation was called "Operation Rolling in the Park." Police and narcotics officers used surveillance video to identify the suspects.

The operation came after repeat complaints to police about drug sales taking place in a public park around the 3100-block of West Harrison. Eight people have been charged with narcotics-related offenses.

Police say they hope to continue to use these tactics to shut down drug markets.
