Federal authorities joined forces with Ontario police Wednesday to arrest 27 members of an Ontario street gang on drug and weapons charges.The suspects are believed to be connected to the Black Angels, a Latino gang affiliated with the prison-based Mexican Mafia. In addition to the arrests, officers seized drugs, weapons and cash, believed to be linked to gang activity.

Investigators say the gang recruited members from local high schools and smuggled drugs from Mexico.

The suspects arrested today were named in a federal indictment. Authorities are still looking for eight more suspects who were indicted.
