SAN BERNARDINO - Officers from a specialized Inland Empire gang taskforce swarmed through the streets Friday night in an attempt to curb gang activity that has plagued the city for months, police officials said.
More than 60 people were taken into custody during the 10-hour sweep. Several weapons and an unknown amount of drugs were seized, police said.
Three recent brazen ambushes of law enforcement officers have San Bernardino County's top two lawmen believing police and sheriff's deputies are in the cross-hairs of gang members.
Sitting in a Redlands coffee shop last week, District Attorney Michael A. Ramos and Sheriff John McMahon discussed that violence, which has left San Bernardino area peace officers on edge over the last two weeks.
