Long Island, New York: A two-year investigation led to the arrest of 96 members of the MS-13 gang, known for extreme violence and using machetes in killings and assaults. Charges include murder, murder conspiracy, drug trafficking, weapons possession and gang violence. Worldwide, 230 gang members were arrested and at least seven murder plots were interrupted. Police seized more than 10 kilograms of cocaine, more than 1,000 fentanyl pills, unspecified amounts of heroin and marijuana, nine handguns, two long guns, numerous machetes and more than $200,000 cash. The goal of the investigation was to deliver a major blow to the gang’s leadership, operations and recruitment in the region. The leadership of MS-13 in El Salvador is trying to develop a greater presence in Long Island.

MS-13, known as Mara Salvatrucha, originated decades ago among Salvadoran immigrants in Los Angeles and has since built a criminal network that extends across the US, with thriving pockets in the Washington, DC, suburbs and on Long Island. An official from the Drug Enforcement Administration said MS-13 had 8,000-10,000 members in the US and Europe and 50,000 members in Central America.

Authorities in New York have announced a wide-ranging investigation that resulted in criminal charges against 96 MS-13 gang members on Long Island.

The two-year investigation resulted in what Suffolk County District Attorney Timothy Sini called the biggest takedown of a street gang in New York state. The charges include murder, murder conspiracy, drug trafficking, weapons possession and gang violence.
“MS-13 is a ruthless, savage gang which commits acts of violence to recruit, retain and control its members and exact revenge on its rivals, as well as to extort innocent members of our community,” Sini said in a news release.
“They send portions of that money back to the leadership in their home base of El Salvador. Leaders in El Salvador run the gang by issuing orders to the local cliques here in Suffolk County.”
Worldwide, 230 gang members were arrested and at least seven murder plots were interrupted, Sini said.
Nine leaders of Suffolk County cliques, or factions of the gang, were arrested, Sini said. Seized were more than 10 kilograms of cocaine, more than 1,000 fentanyl pills, unspecified amounts of heroin and marijuana, nine handguns, two long guns, numerous machetes and more than $200,000 cash.
