SA Chris Goodman will talk through the Operation SLide Lock case, which was the culmination of a year-long investigation ending in what has been called one of the largest take downs of a gang operation in Fresno, with the arrest of 20 individuals on federal charges. The charges included conspiracy to traffic illegally in firearms, illegal possession and sales of firearms, drug trafficking, and promoting prostitution. The FBI worked with multiple agencies to target and ultimately cripple the Strother Boys gang of South East Fresno, who are also known for promoting prostitution among their illegal dealings.
