GARDENA (CBS) — Law enforcement officers have arrested 11 gang members and gang associates for crimes that included murder and drug trafficking in Gardena, El Monte, Long Beach, and Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Gardena Police Department participated in the operation, Sheriff’s Lt. Wes Sutton said. The suspects were dealing in methamphetamine, Sutton said.

Authorities seized nearly $100,000 in cash, along with at least one rifle and several cars.

One suspected drug dealer was arrested shortly before daybreak when officers forced their way in a residence on 171st Street in Gardena.
