14 Arrested in Raids Targeting 2 Street Gangs

Fourteen suspected gang members were arrested and 25 weapons were seized on Wednesday during predawn raids at 28 South-Central Los Angeles locations, authorities said.

More than 150 officers armed with search warrants were involved in the raids that targeted two street gangs believed responsible for four homicides last year, said Deputy Chief William Rathburn, commander of the LAPD’s South Bureau.

The fourteen people taken into custody were arrested on a variety of charges ranging from narcotics possession to receiving stolen property, Rathburn said.
