    At least 20 people have been arrested in a South Texas roundup of suspected gang members.

    City officials in Seguin on Tuesday announced the investigation that began in November has also led to the seizure of guns, drugs and cash.

    The arrests that began Monday in Seguin, about 30 miles east of San Antonio, are linked to more than a dozen indictments.

    Investigators say the charges include engaging in organized criminal activity, trafficking and manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance. Some suspects also face aggravated assault charges.
