We knew that they were around, here is what we did about it.
20 MS-13 gang members, their associates and drug suppliers have been charged in two indictments with drug crimes.
Undercover agents say the MS-13 gang sent members to Denver to start up drug operations here because they felt law enforcement was soft. They were wrong. An investigation led by the Metro Drug Task Force has resulted in two indictments and numerous arrests that have put a sizeable dent into the gang’s operation. 8 arrests were made. 7 suspects were taken into custody in Denver and one in Los Anegles where the MS-13 gang was started. Other defendants are already being prosecuted for other crimes or are behind bars. 4 are still at-large. In the course of the arrests, officiers and agents seized 10 pounds of meth, 2.3 kilograms of cocaine, 1.24 grams of heroin, 12 firearms and more than $3,000 in cash.
