US Marshals say they have found five missing children and arrested 262 people in a two-month-long operation in Oklahoma.
Out of the 262 people, 141 gang members were arrested including members of the notorious Surenos gang.
Five missing children turned up in the investigation, the US Marshals Service said, though the circumstances around their disappearance is still unclear.
Those arrested included Pablo Robledo, a lead figure in the Surenos gang and was found after escaping from the Oklahoma County Detention Center while awaiting murder charges.
Rollin’ 60s Crip gang member Dkwon Littlejohn was also arrested on charges he burglarized a car belonging to an Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation special agent and stealing the agent’s duty rifle.
The two month operation was part of a crackdown in crime around Oklahoma 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.”
The Marshalls Service also uncovered 72 firearms and more than 9 kilograms of narcotics.
