Gang sweep nets 100 members
A large gang sweep has dismantled a branch of a notorious Northern California gang, resulting in more than 100 arrests.
State Attorney General Kamala Harris displayed a cache of weapons, drugs and money confiscated during the crackdown in Los Banos today.
"This operation was a success," Harris said, "and this operation will bare its fruit in terms of public safety for the central valley and throughout the state of California."
Investigators say the gang used falsified paperwork to smuggle drugs across the US border with Mexico.
Federal, state and local authorities served 54 warrants this week as part of the crackdown.
