Authorities arrested 46 people in a crackdown on carjackings and violent robberies that have plagued parts of south Minneapolis.

Officers recovered 15 firearms and 12 stolen vehicles - six of which were occupied when they were seized, according to a news release from the Minneapolis Police Department. The operation, which took place over three days last week, resulted in 69 felony-level charges.

The effort comes as crime has spiked in the Twin Cities, following the George Floyd protests in May.
