Hundreds arrested, 5 missing children found during US Marshals Operation Triple Beam

by Destiny Washington

An operation led by the U.S. Marshals Service targeting gang activities in the Oklahoma City metro resulted in 262 arrests, the discovery of five missing and endangered children, and the seizure of firearms and narcotics.
Operation Triple Beam was a collaborative effort between state, local, and federal agencies.

“Our primary goal with operations like OTB is to make communities safer," U.S. Marshals said. "When we arrest these violent fugitives, we are also removing guns and narcotics from our streets. We believe these efforts have an immediate, positive impact on the communities we serve.”
The 60-day operation targeted violent fugitive gang members and focused on neighborhoods that have been impacted by gang violence.
Officials said among the people arrested, 141 were confirmed gang members.
Law enforcement officers seized 72 firearms, more than nine kilograms of narcotics, and nearly $17,000.
The U.S. Marshals Service Metro Fugitive Task Force also safely located five missing children during the operation.
