Operation Holiday Wrap ran from Dec. 7 through Dec. 9. During that time Detroit police officers from the 5th, 9th and 11th precincts worked with the U.S. Marshals and the ATF.
“The operation led to the arrest of a suspect who was wanted for murder, another suspect who was wanted for rape and five robbery suspects were also arrested,” Detroit police Chief James White said.
The identities of most of the suspects will not be released until they have been arraigned.
“Every one of those guns up on that screen is a gun that’s not going to hurt citizens of Detroit or one of our police officers,” Detroit police Commander Eric Decker said.
Officials said it’s a huge victory for the city and every agency involved in the operation.
“Anytime you can take that number of guns, drugs and violent offenders of the street ... It definitely feels good,” U.S. Marshal Owen Cypher said.
