“Operation Triple Beam” effort ends with more than 300 arrests

An attempt to get violent criminals off the streets of Nebraska’s largest city is being called a success. U-S Marshal for Nebraska Mark Martinez says members of their fugitive task force and Omaha Gang Unit officers just wrapped up 14 weeks of a special operation known as “Operation Triple Beam”.

During the operation, 31 guns, $17,000 in illegal drugs and more than $7,000 in cash was seized. Martinez says more than 300 arrests were made in that 14 week period.
