Last month, several LAPD officers teamed up with other Federal agents in a highly coordinated team-effort and arrested 78 suspected members of the notorious “Avenues” street gang. The gang, based out of the north-eastern part of Los Angeles, has been tied to extensive drug trafficking as well as several murders over the past year, including the assassination of a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy.
Nearly 1,200 officers and agents teamed-up for the arrests. Police officials claimed that it was the biggest gang sweep in Los Angeles County in several years. They assert that the arrests have dealt a major blow to the gang and its illegal activities, however also realize that there is still much more to be done in order to combat this gang, of which claims more than 400 members.
