— A search in Beloit for 25 foreign-born men with alleged gang ties nets seven suspects.

Beloit police captain Vince Sciame says federal officials asked for assistance in the operation on Tuesday.


The men were not arrested, but were transported to a jail outside Milwaukee County where a decision would be made about whether they would be deported.


Beloit police say only those with criminal charges or warrants were taken into custody.


Sciame says they are not currently looking for the 18 men federal officials were unable to find during their visit.
