THE BRONX - The FBI has taken 10 alleged Bronx gang members into custody in connection with a violent drug trafficking ring.

Nine of the defendants are charged with conspiracy to distribute the drugs. The gang’s alleged ringleader, Anibal Ramos, and another person, Anibal Soto, were previously arrested this summer on charges of kidnapping and torturing a man with hot iron.
