Williamsport, Lycoming County-
The city of Williamsport is cleaning up and clearing out drug dealers in town.
On Thursday, the city of Williamsport shut down an apartment on the 300 block of Bridge Street.
Police say it was the site of drug deals.
Tenants Randell Peterson and Nafis Faison were both arrested accused of dealing and possessing cocaine.
The mayor and police hope this sends a message to absentee landlords.
The apartment will be shut down for up to six months.
