Saskatoon police have dealt a major blow to a prominent street gang in the city.

It follows a five-and-a-half month investigation by a number of special units within the Saskatoon Police Service.

The investigation was part of "Project Empire which sought to break down the Terror Squad gang which has been active in Saskatoon for a number of years.

14 people, including a high ranking member of the Terror Squad have all been arrested and 42 charges have been laid so far. Police have also identified the source of the gang's drug supply, which resulted in two separate arrests.

Police hope the arrests will take the luster off the gang's reputation.
