Feds Arrest 15 Suspected Gang Members in GA

ATLANTA (AP) -- A federal sweep has led to the arrests of 15 suspected gang members in metro Atlanta.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says the 15 were among more than 600 people arrested this month as part of a crackdown on gangs involved in human smuggling in 150 cities and Honduras. The operation was called "Project Nefarious."
The Atlanta suspects were not identified in a news release on Thursday but authorities said the suspects were charged with state and federal charges.
ICE investigator James Dinkins said the arrests are "putting a dent in the violence these transnational criminal street gangs bring to our communities."
