Both were put behind bars as a result of  "Operation 819."

DAYTONA BEACH -- The men involved in dealing stolen guns and narcotics within the city limits were given prison sentences and a third is awaiting sentences, a Daytona Beach police spokesman said Wednesday, as a result of a two-year joint operation of the police force and the U.S. Department of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

Dubbed "operation 819," 50 people were served federal and state warrants charging them with a variety of narcotics- and firearms-related felonies, Daytona Beach police spokesman Sgt. Paul Barnett said. The operation began in August 2008 and lasted two years, he said.
