Fairfax County police have charged four alleged gang members with various drug and weapons charges after a five-month investigation by the Northern Virginia Regional Gang Task Force.

After receiving a tip regarding an offshoot of an active gang in the region who call themselves the “Reccless Tigers”, police said officers executed a search warrant on Thursday in the 6400 block of Rockshire Street in Alexandria.

Police said they seized multiple firearms including an M-4 rifle and an AR 15, ammunition, more than 10 pounds of marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy and thousands of dollars.

Police would not disclose many details about the raid as the investigation is ongoing.

“Detectives are continuing the investigation and further arrests and charges may be pending,” said police spokeswoman Lucy Caldwell.

The following individuals in connection with this investigation have been charged:

Boubacar Sow, 18; possession of firearm while distributing more than 1 pound of marijuana; possession with intent to distribute marijuana greater than 5 pounds; and maintaining a residence where criminal activity is suspected of routinely occurring.

No attorney information for the men has yet been made available in court records. The four men remain in custody at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center, according to police.
