After a year long investigation involving the FBI and a number law enforcement agencies from Wisconsin and Illinois, 27 gang members were charged in a drug raid executed in October.
The group belonged to a street gang called the Maniac Latin Disciples.
The operation seized three handguns, more than 80 pounds of marijuana and cocaine along with methamphetamine pills, body armor, ammunition, $85,000 in U.S. currency.
Erik Ynnocencio turned himself in to the U.S. Marshals Service in Milwaukee a few days after the raids took place. Fabian Melendez, 30, of Waukegan, Ill remains at large.
