Authorities in Union County are announcing a major takedown of the Latin Kings street gang. About two dozen alleged members and associates of the gang were arrested Sunday night in the culmination of a nine-month investigation by local, state and federal authorities.

Some of those arrested face racketeering charges.

The Union County Prosecutor's Office was to release details about the arrests Tuesday afternoon.

A study last fall found that four in 10 municipalities in New Jersey report some level of gang activity.
