Dozens arrested in New York City gang crackdown

NEW YORK (AP) — Charges are expected against more than 100 members and associates of two rival street New York City street gangs following raids 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, arresting dozens.

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

Authorities are expected to announce charges later Wednesday.
