Endicott Man Arrested As Part Of Bronx Gang Takedown
Local police officers joined NYPD and federal law enforcement agents in taking an Endicott man into custody as part of a massive operation targeting Bronx gang members.
Authorities say 26-year-old Anthony King of 903 Monroe Street was wanted on a federal arrest warrant.
Members of the Broome/Endicott SWAT team along with NYPD and federal investigators descended on the apartment house around 5 a.m. Wednesday.
According to village police, King was taken into custody without incident. He was turned over to the Department of Homeland Security and whisked out of Greater Binghamton Airport to New York City for arraignment.
Federal investigators say about 120 people are being charged in connection with a major roundup of suspected members of a gang based in the northern Bronx.
Police hit more than 100 locations in the coordinated early-morning raids, which prosecutors described as the largest gang takedown in New York City history.
