The Chattanooga Police Department on Monday and Tuesday conducted a gang member roundup termed "Operation Gangsgiving."
It included a gang member warrant operation, traffic enforcement, and a drug buy/bust operation.
The gang member warrant operation and drug buy/bust operation took place throughout the Chattanooga area with numerous arrests and seizures.
The traffic enforcement operation targeted both city streets and interstates. Officers were assigned to I-24, I-75, Highway 27, and Highway 153 "to ensure that drivers traveling through Chattanooga obeyed all traffic laws and make it through our city safely."
The traffic officers recovered a stolen Polaris 850 ATV, that had been reported stolen in Georgia, and wrote 572 moving citations.
City Police said, "Without assistance from the following agencies, this endeavor would not have been as successful or as productive: Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, ATF, TBI, FBI, ICE, Red Bank Police Department, and the Collegedale Police Department."
