MPD, FBI Task Force Arrests 20, Disrupts Violent Gangs

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Milwaukee Police Department conducted an early morning joint task force round-up of members of two violent north side street gangs on numerous state and federal charges on June 9.

The round up, involving nearly 150 FBI agents and MPD personnel, was the result of a months-long investigation. Search warrants were executed at eight north side homes in the early morning hours resulting in the arrest of 13 individuals and the recovery of 10 guns and illegal narcotics.

Over the past few days, 21 people have been arrested in connection with this operation.

Charges include among others, felon in possession of a firearm, felony violation of probation, possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, and keeper of a drug house.

The DEA, ATF, Department of Corrections, Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office and the U.S. Attorney’s Office also were involved in the operation along with assistance from Oak Creek and West Allis Police.
