Anti-crime operation nets 34 arrests in San Bernardino County

Authorities made 34 arrests and seized more than 25 pounds of methamphetamine during a recent anti-crime operation in San Bernardino County, officials announced last week. 

Operation Consequences took place April 20-26 and focused on “targeted crime suppression operations and parole and probation checks” in the High Desert and the areas surrounding the city of San Bernardino that are patrolled by the county sheriff’s department, according to a county statement.

Last week, a similar effort involving nine search warrants resulted in seven felony arrests the seizure of nearly one pound of unspecified “illegal narcotics” and nine firearms, three of which were unregistered, or “ghost,” guns, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department reported Monday. 

The 34 arrests took place April 26 after investigators served 12 search warrants in Hesperia, San Bernardino, Victorville, Fontana, Adelanto and Colton. Those raids targeted alleged gang members and people prohibited from possessing guns. Authorities recovered over 25 pounds of suspected methamphetamine along with 32 firearms, including two ghost guns. 

The operation included personnel from the sheriff’s Gangs/Narcotics Division, Specialized Enforcement Division and several patrol stations, as well as the California Highway Patrol, San Bernardino County Probation, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Investigations, officials said. 

Operation Consequences will continue throughout the next several months. Officials said the effort’s aim is “to curb violent crime, disrupt and dismantle targeted criminal street gangs, and locate and arrest criminals who are illegally possessing, manufacturing and trafficking firearms.”

The police departments of San Bernardino, Ontario, Upland and Fontana also take part in the operation, according to the county. 

The Board of Supervisors approved funding for countywide crime suppression to enable more law enforcement services related to quality-of-life issues, according to the county.
