OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Federal investigators say projects between Homeland Security and the U.S. Attorney's office are aimed at dismantling criminal enterprises in such a way that others can't step in and restart them.
The agencies held a briefing Monday to discuss goals for 2014 and reflect on progress made by the Green Twister Financial Task Force, which is a partnership among law enforcement organizations in Oklahoma City.
Homeland Security special agent David Marwell said the task force's objective is to go after criminals and seize their "ill-gotten gains."
The Green Twister Financial Task Force says it's made 416 arrests and seized $7.3 million since its inception less than three years ago.
U.S. Attorney Sanford Coats said he expects seizures to increase in 2014 as the agencies continue their focus on financial crimes.
