Police arrested a group of motorcycle gang members on charges of trafficking dozens of high-caliber weapons Tuesday.

Authorities say eight members of three Brooklyn-based bike gangs were arrested.

They allege the bikers sold 41 firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition to undercover officers.

While carrying out the arrests, police say they also recovered 20 more firearms, along with explosives, drugs and an operational cannon.

If convicted of weapons trafficking, each gang member faces up to five years behind bars.
