Body armor, assault rifles, handguns, and black-tar heroin

10:27 | , , ,

Body armor, assault rifles, handguns, and black-tar heroin: That's what police said they pulled out of eight homes Tuesday, the result of an undercover operation that lasted five months.
San Antonio police said they also pulled out a dozen suspected gang members.
Federal prosecutors handed down sealed indictments for some alleged members of the Mexican Mafia and arrested them on drug and extortion charges.

Agents with the ATF joined San Antonio's gang and TRU units in the round-up. Investigators said they found thousands of dollars in cash among the black-tar heroin.

Police Chief Bill McManus said the arrests put a severe dent in the mafia's leadership in San Antonio.

Prosecutors say three of the men arrested were illegal immigrants with lengthy criminal records who had already been deported.

The dozen face charges that carry federal prison sentences of up to 20 years behind bars and millions of dollars in fines.
