    A permanent federal anti-gang office will open in Charlotte by the end of the summer, U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick announced Wednesday.

    The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office takes over for a temporary unit established in 2005 that has partnered with local police to disrupt gangs originating in Latin American countries, particularly the Mara Salvatrucha 13, Surenos, Brown Pride, SUR-13 and Latin King street gangs.
