Operation Crackdown has begun in Calvert.

The City of Calvert is taking advantage of federally seized drug money to tear down dilapidated drug houses.

It's a program we told you about last month on KBTX and today was the first day of Operation Crackdown. A few of the 30 homes set to be demolished were destroyed.

Soldiers with the Texas National Guard will be in Calvert this week to tear down those homes and coming up on Thursday on KBTX, we'll show you more on this state run operation.
