Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA VALLEY -- People in the Yakima valley can sleep a little easier tonight. Area law enforcement agencies say 15  people have been arrested in a week-long multi-agency gang enforcement operation.

The gang sweep ended Wednesday, June 30th and began June 24th. Both local and federal law enforcement worked together to find and arrest dangerous people and people with gang ties in the upper Yakima valley.

Suspects were arrested in Yakima, Union Gap, Wapato and Moxee. They were arrested on charges ranging from unlawful possession of firearm, to narcotics trafficking, to immigration violations.

There are still a few outstanding warrants for some people who police did not find during the operation.
