WASHINGTON (WUSA9) – Multiple law enforcement agencies conducted a a gang-related sweep in parts of northern Virginia and DC Wednesday morning.
Details of the operation are under seal at a federal courthouse in Virginia, which is why information is sparse.
A spokesman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said the “round-up” was on-going mid-Wednesday afternoon.
Lloyd Burton said it focused on “local gangs” and “violent criminals” in Northern Virginia, with some operations spilling over into DC.
He said the ATF had been investigating for some time, but needed help from other police agencies as it swept in to arrest suspects. He said some firearms were involved.
According to Kadia Koroma, spokeswoman for the FBI Washington Field Office, the court-authorized law enforcement activity in the DC region and involved multiple federal, state, and local agencies.
Another law enforcement source confirmed to WUSA9’s Bruce Leshan that the agencies are making multiple arrests.
No further details are being released at this time, however an update is expected from the FBI later Wednesday afternoon.
