SFPD announced police have detained eight individuals, all of whom are allegedly connected to a gang that has conducted a slew of crimes, including "shootings, armed robberies, and car burglaries" done around the Bay Area.
According to KRON4, SFPD served seven different warrants this past Wednesday as part of an ongoing investigation that began in April of 2022 regarding a string of robberies and violent crimes across the region. Two people were arrested at the start of the investigation, which led to the recovery of stolen firearms and electronic devices — and these arrests led to what's now a months-long investigation into the discovered group of criminals.
(2/3) This led to a lengthy investigation of an SF-based gang with ties throughout the Bay Area, including shootings, armed robberies, and auto burglaries. On 11/16/2022, SFPD and multiple law enforcement agencies served seven search warrants in cities in the Bay Area.— San Francisco Police (@SFPD) November 17, 2022
Per the news outlet, SFPD's recently conducted eight arrests also led to the confiscation of a variety of items — including guns, drugs, and stolen property.
