HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – Detectives reported going after a suspected criminal organization with several sources of revenue. They seized weapons — an AK-47 pistol and a Smith & Wesson M&P handgun — blank checks, debit and credit cards, cell phones, iPads, jewelry, designer handbags, a stolen vehicle, and over $150,000 in cash, police said.

Detectives linked the suspected gang members to nearly 30 residential burglaries in South Florida. To foil their operation, detectives simultaneously executed three arrest warrants and search warrants in Broward County, the Hollywood Police Department announced on Tuesday.

According to Officer Christian Lata, a spokesman for the department, the investigation also involved the Attorney General’s Office, the Broward Sheriff’s Office and the Margate Police Department. Officers arrested three suspects.

“These suspects committed these crimes while already on pre-trial release for previous crimes and while wearing court-ordered GPS ankle monitors,” Lata said.

The three suspects, who are ages 18 to 21, are accused of belonging to the criminal organization that aside from armed burglaries was also linked to financial fraud.
