five-day law enforcement operation targeting suspected members of transnational gangs has resulted in the arrests of 22 men in Bolingbrook, Joliet, Glendale Heights and Melrose Park, officials say.

The arrests began April 17 and was dubbed Operation Community Shield. It involved local and state law enforcement officers along with agents from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations unit.

Those arrested, raning in age from 18 to 40, were being held in ICE custody on immigration charges, pending deportation, according to a the federal agency. Their names were not released.

ICE said it targeted the gangs because they were believed to have significant numbers of foreign-born members and are frequently involved in human and contraband smuggling, immigration violations and other crimes with a connection to the border.

The latest roundup took in 18 Mexican nationals, two of whom were previously deported. Two others were from Guatemala, and one was from Ghana.

All have criminal histories that include arrests or convictions for a range of crimes committed in the United States and have alleged ties to the Vice Lords, Latin Kings, Latin Pstones, Two-Sixers, and Sureño 13s gangs.

Some of their crimes include: aggravated battery to a peace officer, armed robbery, burglary, criminal damage to property, domestic battery, drunken driving, mob action, possessing marijuana with intent to deliver, residential burglary, unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon, and unlawfully using a weapon.

"Violent street gangs account for a burgeoning amount of crime in Chicago and our surrounding communities," said Gary Hartwig, special agent in charge of ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in Chicago. "ICE works in tandem with our local law enforcement partners to identify these gang members and remove them from the streets in the name of public safety."
