Gang sweep leads to 115 arrests

From Bill Lindelof:

A sweep last week of suspected gang members resulted in 115 arrests, the recovery of seven firearms and the confiscation of cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamine with a street value of $238,000, according to law enforcement authorities.

Dubbed SNAG III: Sacramento Neighborhoods Against Gangs, the sweep was the third of its kind conducted by the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department and the Sacramento Police Department in conjunction with federal, state, county and municipal law enforcement agencies.

The operation took place Thursday and Friday with 320 officers from 21 agencies targeting known gang members on parole or probation in the Sacramento region.
