officials as we speak. >> they be all hands on deck-type sfleepts >> absolutely. >> reporter: mayor muriel bowser says a focus on getting synthetic drugs off the streets, including synthetic marijuana. >> a developing story now, sometime no okay is he is to the army's busch website after a group affiliated with the syrian regime hacked into it. this is what the website looks like. the army took it offline as a precaution. the syrian electronic army has claimed responsibility and tweeted this screen grab of what appears to be a message on the website before it crashed. the hackers are demanding that the u.s. stop training rebel fighters inside syria. a letter in the mailboxes for those hacked against the office of emergency management. 4 million people may have had their information compromised. now they are trying to find out whether people who never worked for the government were
affected. the concern centers around forms filled out by federal employees seeking security clearances. those forms often include the personal information of references, which could include relatives, friends even college roommates. 29 homes, two businesses raided. more than a dozen people arrested. the culmination of a year-long effort to get drugs off the streets in maryland. as news4's mark segraves discovered authorities didn't even tell neighbors about it. he joins us live from silver spring with more. mark why the secrecy? >> reporter: chris, police say they had to do that in order to really get rid of this entire organization. you know, we wouldn't be standing here today and this drug operation may still be going if it weren't for the residents who live in bell pre square who repeatedly koch lynned to police about an open-air drug market. those complaints started more than a year ago and police unable to tell them they were not only just going after those drug dealers but the entire drug
operation. the early-morning raids in montgomery and prince georges counties resulted in 18 people being arrest and at least the streets. police also seized a large amount of drugs and tens of thousands of dollars in cash. >> we eliminated that group. they no longer exist. they have been taken out of that neighborhood, all the way out to the source of sun ply in new jersey. >> reporter: prosecutors and police say that is good news for the families who live here in bell pre square and other communities where this group sold heroin and cocaine. >> the community for a long period of time was frustrated and intimidate. >> reporter: while that intimidation came from the drug dealers, part of the frustration was directed at police because despite repeated requests to do something, police didn't appear to be making any progress. today, police say that was a tough choice they had to make to ensure they put an end to this drug organization. there's two strategies, you can go out you can make -- you can make some quick arrests and you really don't impact the larger organization or you can do a
longer term investigation and end that criminal enterprise. >> reporter: police know their job is far from finished just because this one operation has been shut down. >> we will certainly keep a higher profile in there and do everything we can to make sure that a new operation doesn't begin. >> reporter: you can check out the nbc washington app to see all the names of the 18 suspects arrested. in montgomery county mark segraves news4. a big vote tonight for the d.c. zoning commission could keep new homes like this one from being built. the vote concerns those so-called pop-up additions on traditional row houses that make them out of character for their neighborhoods. officials could place new tougher restrictions on homeowners and developers of pop-ups. this will not impact existing pop-ups that have already gotten legal approval. a lot of development in tysons corner and some people are calling it america's next great city. the landscape is changing so
