SEGUIN, Texas (AP) - Investigators say more than 20 suspected gang members have been arrested in South Texas in a sweep linked to drugs, illegal cash and violence.

Seguin (sih-GEEN’) police announced Friday’s arrests on state and federal warrants for manufacture and delivery of controlled substances and organized crime counts.

Officials believe the suspects are part of the prison-based Mexican Mafia. The suspects were captured mainly in Guadalupe (gwah-dah-LOO’-pay) County.

Seguin police Deputy Chief Bruce Ure (yur) says officers seized cash, weapons and drugs.

A police statement says the 18-month investigation involved multiple law enforcement agencies.
