Twelve homes and a bank in the Las Vegas area were raided last week as federal authorities executed search warrants targeting drug traffickers and a well-known New Mexico prison gang.

At least nine people from Las Vegas have been charged with federal crimes.

Those arrested in Las Vegas following the raids include Rose Ann Romero, 36; Jonathan Vigil, 27; Luis Sanchez, 31; Amanda Silva, 33; Genevieve Atencio, 24; Janaya Atencio, 25; and Marcos Ruiz, 40. Ruiz was already in custody at the San Miguel County Detention Center on charges of murder and attempted murder. He will be transferred into federal custody to face the charges in the federal indictment, according to the Department of Justice.
