Dozens arrested in New York City gang crackdown

NEW YORK (AP) — Dozens have been arrested in raids on two rival New York City street gangs in the city’s Bronx borough Wednesday.

Federal and New York law enforcers — some using helicopters and armored trucks — swooped in during the early morning hours.

The wide-ranging crackdown involves homicides, drug trafficking, robberies and other crimes.

Authorities are expected to announce charges against more than 100 gang members and associates later Wednesday.
