238 Gang Members arrested in 3 Months

More gang suspects from Central America and the Caribbean are moving to South Florida, lured by the opportunity of a new territory to battle over drugs, guns, money and prostitution, a federal official said Tuesday after a nationwide sweep netted 1,313.illcrim.jpg

The three-month effort concentrated on 23 major metropolitan areas, including Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, where 162 suspects were arrested, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said.

Raids also resulted in the arrests of 76 suspected gang members in Orlando and Fort Myers, according to Anthony Mangione, special agent in charge of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Miami.

The summer sweep yielded one of the largest number of gang-member arrests since Operation Community Shield, which targets foreign-born gang suspects, began in 2005. So far, it has resulted in the arrests of 7,655 gang members and associates across the nation.
