Big Gang Sweep In Tri Cities Nets Numerous Arrests
No less than 11 different law enforcement agencies, including ICE (Immigrations and Customs Enforcement and US Marshalls!) made more than 25 arrests in a huge gang sweep of the Tri-Cities.
Kennewick police chief Ken Hohenberg announced Friday the sweep, the 7th such event since 2009, netted 25 arrests of known wanted gang members who had warrants on a variety of charges. 8 search warrants were served in Kennewick and Pasco during the operation. According to officials these sweeps take nearly a month to put together, but the result is that in just a matter of hours, large groups of potentially dangerous individuals are placed behind bars. And estimated 26-30 officers were directly involved in the sweep.
