Dozens of suspected gang members have been arrested in connection with an alleged drug ring in the Bronx.

Charges were announced Wednesday against 33 men accused of conspiracy to sell crack cocaine, powder cocaine, and heroin.

Out of those charged, 24 of the men, ranging in age from 19 to 52 years old, were arrested during a raid of a building on Irvine Street in Hunts Point. The raid began last night and lasted until this morning.

Five suspects remain at large, and four were already in custody.

The sister of one of the suspects said her brother has nothing to hide.

"They just came and took him. They had a search warrant and they said they just want to, but they didn't find anything,” said Mildred Guzman, whose brother was arrested. “He is in no trouble. He’s not dealing anything. It just doesn't explain anything."

Over 300 hundred federal, state and local law enforcement officers were involved in the investigation.
