(Cleveland) - Operation Legend, the federal operation in Clevelnad to round up violent criminals, is doing well, according to its backers.
In the past month, 54 people have been charged in Cleveland with federal violent crimes as they were rounded up because of Operation Legend. They include 39 facing narcotics charges, and 13 facing firearms charges.
Operation Legend was launched in Kansas City, and spread to Chicago, Albuquerque, Clevelnad, Detroit, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Memphis, and Indinapolis. More than 2,000 arrests have been made in all nine cities.
“Operation Legend has had a strong start in the city of Cleveland and we hope to build upon this early success,” said U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman. “This initiative has already seen more than 50 defendants charged with federal crimes and has removed numerous firearms and drugs off our streets. This success is due to the strong partnership that we have here in Cleveland between city, state and federal law enforcement.”
