Three alleged gang members, one wanted for murder, were arrested by police who confiscated drugs and weapons during a wild takedown that involved several vehicle crashes. 

The arrest took place on Thursday, Oct. 29 in Hauppauge.

That's when members of the Suffolk County Police Firearm Suppression Team, along with members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, located Brandon Hicks, 19, of Hauppauge, who had an active warrant from Nassau County for attempted murder, reckless endangerment, and criminal possession of a weapon.

Inside the vehicle, three loaded handguns were recovered in addition to approximately 30 grams of crack and 35 grams of fentanyl. 

 Police also recovered two loaded handguns, an assault rifle, shotgun, and approximately 35 grams of crack at a residence in Hauppauge.
