Trenton police said Friday the arrests on Wednesday were part of a larger investigation into a subset of the Bloods street gang stretching back two years.

Police say New Jersey, Pennsylvania and federal officials carried out seven of the warrants in Trenton, one in Hamilton, one in Lawrence and one in Morrisville, Pennsylvania.
