MIAMI - Federal and local law enforcement agents have arrested 321 suspected gang members in South Florida during a month-long investigation, officials said today.

Alleged members of the MS-13, SUR-13, Victory Park, Leisure City and One Way gangs were among those taken into custody, according to U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement, which coordinated the effort.

Those arrested face charges that include racketeering, drug dealing, firearms possession and parole violation.

The arrests came as part of an ICE initiative labeled "Operation Community Shield," in which federal agents teamed with local law officers to tackle "transnational" street gangs.

"Those arrested are from Cuba, Haiti, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Jamaica, El Salvador, Colombia, Chile and the United States," according to a statement from ICE.

Assisting local agencies included the Broward and Palm Beach sheriff's offices and the police departments of Miami-Dade County, Miami, Miami Beach, Hialeah, Boynton Beach and Lake Worth.

Other federal agencies, such as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, were also involved.
