14 arrested, 6 at large after Bronx drug sweep

Police arrested at least 14 people and are seeking another six suspects in a boroughwide drug bust, according to authorities. 



Court documents allege that the group sold crack-cocaine and marijuana in an area framed by East 213th Street, 215th Street, Barnes Avenue and White Plains Road.



Investigators say the 20 suspects called themselves the "213 Box."



Police also blame the group for violence in the area.



Police took three of the suspects into custody and seized two boxes from a building at East 215th Street and Holland Avenue Wednesday, according to a spokesman for the United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York.
