Police: 177 people arrested in Richmond during special operation, majority connected to government housing

The Richmond Police Department said officers have arrested 177 people in a special operation that was launched after two boys were gunned down outside a convenience store in November. The figure shared by the department late last week is part of “Operation Red Ball” (ORB), which is an effort “to prevent violent crime and those illegally possessing firearms.” Tracy Walker, a police spokesperson, said those who were investigated fit into three different categories. “[Police seek] information on violent offenders based on criminal evidence in the commission of major crimes, those who have been victims of violent crime, or involved with related criminal activity,” she said. https://www.wric.com/news/local-news/richmond/police-177-people-arrested-in-richmond-during-special-operation-majority-connected-to-government-housing/
