Omaha police said Wednesday two more suspects sought in Operation Wipe It Down have turned themselves in to authorities.

Twenty-eight-year-old Clarence Dennis, wanted for possession of a firearm following a felony conviction, sale of a firearm to a known felon, robbery and possession of stolen property, and 26-year-old Veronica Ray, wanted for sale of a firearm to a known felon, are now in custody joining nine others as part of the recent crackdown on gang violence in Omaha.

That leaves 24-year-old Charles Toles as the lone suspect still at large. He is wanted for possession of a firearm following a felony conviction.

Authorities say Toles should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information as to his whereabouts is asked to call 402-444-STOP.

The United States’ Attorney’s Office, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Omaha Police Department say the suspects face federal charges including firearms trafficking, illegal firearm possession and drug trafficking offenses.

The ATF and Omaha Police Department began a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Program-sponsored violent crime task force last January targeting gang members and gang associates.
