(KNX 1070) - More than two dozen MS-13 gang members and affiliates have been charged Friday after a months-long murder and drug trafficking investigation.

It was centered near Fresno. The notorious street gang took advantage of an understaffed police department in the small town of Mendota and terrorized the area.

MS-13 was formed in Los Angeles in the 1980s by refugees from El Salvador. 

The arrests happened in Los Angeles and the rural California farm city of Mendota.

Mendota is about 35 miles west of Fresno.
