The three-year investigation, dubbed “Operation Blackjack,” snared members of the Unforgiven and United Aryan Brotherhood gangs, WFTS reported.

Those indicted range in age from 24 to 48 and were facing various charges, including possessing firearms and pipe bombs and possession and distribution of heroin and meth, WTSP reported.

“You know, these are one of those very proud moments we have," Pasco County Sheriff Chris told WFTS. “It’s scary when you look over that table and you see those guns and they are in the hands of felons."

The suspects are facing two years to life in prison, WFTS reported. Some indictments have already led to convictions and sentences of up to 10 years, WTSP reported.
