Now the suppression unit is reporting some arrests in connection with their work. Thirteen people, seven juveniles and six adults have been arrested and charged with various crimes including Terroristic Acts and Battery 1st Degree.

An addtional six arrests are expected in the very near future including three adults and three juveniles. The Gang Suppression Unit has indentifed over 70 members of criminal street gangs in the Texarkana area.
