The U.S. Marshals in Oklahoma have cracked down on gang activity with Operation Triple Beam. The investigation generated the arrest of 262 people, of whom 141 were gang members.
Happily, the six-month investigation also found 5 missing children. Lia Eustachewich reports for the New York Post:
Those arrested included Pablo Robledo, a known Surenos gang member who was collared on July 31 after fleeing from the Oklahoma County Detention Center while awaiting murder charges.
And Chasady and Charles Hall — both Dungee Crip members — are charged with kidnapping their children, who were in state Department of Human Services custody. The pair was arrested on Aug. 12 in Midwest City.
“Our primary goal with operations like OTB is to make communities safer,” the Marshals said in a statement. “When we arrest these violent fugitives, we are also removing guns and narcotics from our streets. We believe these efforts have an immediate, positive impact on the communities we serve.”
