SUMMARY: Between April 1, 2023, and May 12, 2023, investigators from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department – Gangs/Narcotics Division, along with deputies from patrol stations, served 22 search warrants and contacted suspects at various locations in San Bernardino, and Yucaipa, Highland, Apple Valley, Rialto, and Victorville.
During the service of search warrants and additional contacts, investigators seized 28 firearms, eight of which were ghost guns, and nearly three and one-half pounds of narcotics, to include fentanyl and methamphetamine. Investigators made 40 felony arrests.
The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors authorized funds to assist with county-wide crime suppression. The intent is to provide additional funding to the Sheriff’s Department, allowing for increased law enforcement services related to quality-of-life issues affecting the communities in our county.
Operation Consequences will focus on conducting targeted crime suppression operations in the High Desert and the Sheriff’s jurisdiction surrounding the city of San Bernardino. There are currently 6,721 parolees at large in California and 564 parolees at large in San Bernardino County. The operation will include personnel from the Sheriff’s Gangs/Narcotics Division, Specialized Enforcement Division, and Patrol Stations, as well as California Highway Patrol, San Bernardino County Probation, and Department of Homeland Security Investigations. Operation Consequences will take place over the next several months to curb violent crime, disrupt and dismantle targeted criminal street gangs, and locate and arrest criminals who are illegally possessing, manufacturing, and trafficking firearms.
