Over 50 individuals were arrested on that single day.  Then on Friday several more gang members were arrested, for a total of over 70 arrests.

19 search warrants were served, and 18 guns as well as 12 pounds of meth were taken off of the street.

Sheriff John McMahon remarked, “When violent crime and narcotics trafficking are reduced, communities throughout the county are safer for residents. I am very proud of the work done by all agencies involved in this investigation.”
