Feds raid Hudson Valley town in massive gang bust

NEWBURGH, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities have charged dozens of reputed members of the Blood and Latin Kings street gangs in a massive takedown north of New York City.

More than 300 heavily armed federal agents and local police raided homes at dawn on Thursday in Newburgh, N.Y. — a town that has been plagued by drug-related violence.

Authorities say so far 78 suspects — 60 alleged Bloods and 18 reputed Latin Kings — are facing various drug charges.
