The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department's IMPACT Division served search warrants at seven residences in Sacramento County, Roseville and West Sacramento. The operation was conducted in response to increasing violence in north Sacramento County this year, including an incident in which an unknown assailant shot at undercover sheriff's deputies last month, according to a Sheriff's Department news release.
Arrested and booked into Sacramento County Jail were (pictured from top left) Cristiano Cisneros, 21, Louis Cisneros, 22, Victor Cisneros, 25, David Cisneros, 26, Roland Cisneros, 43, Oscar Cisneros, 44 and Anthony Reece, 25. Sheriff's officials said the men, collectively, face multiple charges, including possession of controlled substances for sale, possession of controlled substances while armed with loaded firearms, possession of an assault weapon, criminal conspiracy, violations of probation and felony child endangerment.
Law enforcement officers seized six firearms, including two fully automatic weapons and a sawed-off shotgun, as well as body armor, marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine and numerous items indicative of criminal street gang membership, officials said.
The IMPACT Division was formed at the beginning of 2012 and consists of Sheriff's Department personnel, along with representatives of various local, state and federal agencies throughout the region. Their mission, according to the news release is to "eliminate violent street gangs, their causes and effects, and the criminal means by which they support their lifestyle."
Today's operation involved the Sacramento and Placer county sheriff's departments, Folsom Police Department and the Yolo Narcotics Enforcement Team.
