Baltimore raids carried out by federal and local law enforcement targeting violent offenders

- More than 100 federal agents and local police have spent the week in Baltimore serving arrests warrants for what have been described as violent offenders, FOX 5 has learned.

Operation 7 Sentries kicked off Tuesday and included The U.S. Marshals Service, DEA, FBI, ATF and local police.

According to two law enforcement sources, the operation was ordered by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and had been planned for weeks.

Sources said more than 60 people had been locked up as of Thursday night and more than a $1 million in cash was seized by authorities.

"This is an ongoing U.S. Marshall-led initiative, one part of a multi-pronged effort to provide additional crime-fighting assistance to Baltimore City," the governor's office said in a written statement to FOX 5.
