Talk about sterling resumes.

ATF, along with local law enforcement in the Omaha, Neb., area announced Tuesday charges against 55 defendants who have a total of 2,637 previous contacts with law enforcement, 255 arrests, 52 felony convictions and 151 misdemeanor convictions.

ATF said the seven-month undercover investigation targeting violent crime in Omaha resulted in the seizure of more than 70 firearms and illegal drugs with a street value of over $50,000. Some of the drugs seized included PCP, methamphetamine, crack cocaine, marijuana and prescription narcotics.

“Today marks a significant step in ridding our community of felons, firearms and drugs but there is still much work to do,” said U.S. Attorney Deborah R. Gilg. “The joint federal/local task force members are to be commended for their outstanding work.”
