1,300 local and federal law enforcement officers have arrested 80 alleged members and associates of a major Southern California street gang early Thursday as part of a two-and-a-half-year investigation, authorities said.

During the pre-dawn operation, code-named "Pirate Town" which targets the Rancho San Pedro (RSP) gang which has been active in San Pedro, a port district 24 miles (39 km) south of downtown Los Angeles, authorities arrested 66 people for state weapons and drug violations, and 14 people on federal indictments.

Authorities also seized 14 additional firearms, including a silencer, a small quantity of methamphetamine and cocaine and 10 lbs. of marijuana.

The case began as a joint investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (AFT).

Personnel from a variety of agencies including the LAPD, the ATF, the Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Internal Revenue Service, the U.S. Secret Service, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation participated in the overnight raids across the area.
