GARDEN CITY, Kansas – Two more members of a Garden City street gang have been arrested as part of a two year long operation by local law enforcement.
Garden City police announced the results of the bust dubbed “Operation Frontline” earlier this week. They said they had made 29 arrests.
The operation began after a home invasion robbery at an apartment on the 2600 block of Main Street back in October 2011 allegedly perpetrated by several members of the street gang. Officials would not identify which street gang they targeted, but said the arrests will hamper the gang’s future criminal activities.
“The types of crimes that they were involved in included gang recruitment and violent crimes up to attempted murder so we anticipate it will have an immediate and very positive impact for us,” said Chief James Hawkins, Garden City Police Department.
Garden City police are still looking for two suspects in connection with the bust accused of several violent crimes and drug selling offenses
- Joaquin Ceniceros, Ulysses, is wanted for sale of cocaine.
- Victor Guzman, Amarillo, Texas is wanted for aggravated battery and incitement to riot.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Garden City Crime Stoppers at 620-275-7807.
