TYLER, Texas (AP) — Federal authorities say a three-day operation has resulted in the arrest of 40 people in East Texas who were in the U.S. illegally.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced Tuesday that the 37 men and three women arrested last week all have criminal records.

Authorities say 14 of the Mexican nationals were found in Tyler, 12 in Longview, six in Canton and the others in the surrounding area. They ranged in age from 21 to 60.

Their offenses include assault with bodily injury, driving while intoxicated, burglary and injury to a child.

The Smith County Sheriff’s Office along with police in Tyler, Longview, Kilgore and elsewhere assisted in the operation that concluded Saturday.
