Dateline Connecticut: 80 Kings in the Hole

Connecticut authorities arrested more than 80 top-level members of the Hispanic street gang “The Latin Kings” in connection with a long-term drug investigation.

“Operation: Royal Flush” was the largest sweep in Waterbury’s history. Beginning in January, it involved 250 officers from multiple departments. Since that time, undercover agents from the BATF and Waterbury police officers bought 33 guns from illegal gun dealers, the majority of which were semi-automatic guns.
