Memphis police make major drug bust

MEMPHIS, Tenn. Twelve gang members have been arrested in a major drug bust involving the seizure of marijuana, cocaine, illegal weapons and $1 million in cash, authorities said this morning.

Speaking at a press conference, U.S. Atty. David Kustoff said raids were carried out at 15 locations with the primary focus at homes on Mayflower and Vernon, both near Jackson and National in the Nutbush area.
He said the 12 arrested included gang members of the Vice Lords, the Gangster Disciples and the Almighty Latin Kings. Ten of the 12 are in custody.

The multi-agency investigation was the culmination of several months of work and ranks as "one of the biggest busts in the history of the city," said Memphis Police Director Larry Godwin.
