LOS BANOS, Calif. — State and federal agents swarmed across several small communities in and around the San Joaquin Valley town of Los Banos early Tuesday morning and arrested 75 alleged members of the Nuestra Familia prison gang and the Norteno street gang.

The raid, code-named "Red Zone," also netted weapons, including five assault rifles, $64,000 in cash and unnamed quantities of methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana. The operation was the culmination of a two-year effort targeting "transnational gangs" that operate across the U.S.-Mexico border, dealing in drugs, weapons and human trafficking.
