MILWAUKEE — Crime has decreased in a north-side neighborhood since a crackdown last month on a violent gang that operated in the area, Milwaukee police officials said Tuesday.

The gang, known as the Nash Street Boys, terrorized residents in the neighborhood near N. 19th and W. Nash streets, selling about $1 million worth of cocaine and marijuana over a two-year period, officials said. The gang was targeted Feb. 14, when teams of law enforcement officers, led by Milwaukee police and the FBI, arrested 39 people suspected of gang involvement.
