ICE busts Sureno-13 and Vatos Locos gang members
Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents said today they've arrested 18 members from notorious gangs including Sureno-13 and Vatos Locos working the drug trade in Minneapolis, Bloomington and Richfield.
The arrests came after a weeklong operation related to a program called Operation Community Shield that targets transnational street gangs. The local effort ended last Friday. ICE officials told the AP that Some of those arrested were in the country illegally and are scheduled to be deported. One man was being held at the Hennepin County Jail on an attempted murder charge.
