13 men arrested on gang related charges

Milwaukee police and he FBI have been working together for quite some time to investigate two Milwaukee gangs, and their efforts culminated in a raid that resulted in the arrests of thirteen Milwaukee men, according to the Journal Sentinel on June 9.

The gangs under investigation are the ATK, which apparently stands for Atkinson Ave., and HPT, an acronym which some investigators say stands for Hustlers, Pimps and Thugs, while others hold that it refers to Hampton Ave. Reports say these two gangs have operated across the north side of Milwaukee for the past two or three years.

Officers recovered ten guns and a “felony quantity” of narcotics, including $21,000 worth of marijuana that they found in one home. The arrested men face federal and state charges on issues of gun and drug violations.
