Between September 23, 2023, and September 29, 2023, law enforcement agencies in San Bernardino County conducted a targeted crime suppression operation known as “Operation Consequences.” This operation, authorized by the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors, aimed to address quality-of-life issues and combat criminal activities affecting various communities in the county.

Over the course of the week, investigators from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department – Gangs/Narcotics Division, in collaboration with deputies from patrol stations, executed 21 search warrants and made contact with suspects at multiple locations across different cities, including Yucca Valley, San Bernardino, Victorville, Jurupa Valley, Riverside, Rancho Cucamonga, Colton, Redlands, and Apple Valley.

During these operations, law enforcement personnel seized illegal narcotics and confiscated 12 firearms, with six of them categorized as ghost guns, which are unserialized and unregistered firearms. Additionally, investigators made 15 felony arrests.

Operation Consequences is part of a broader effort to enhance law enforcement services and address violent crime, particularly in the High Desert region and the areas surrounding the city of San Bernardino. The operation involves personnel from various law enforcement divisions, including the Sheriff’s Gangs/Narcotics Division, Specialized Enforcement Division, and Patrol Stations, as well as agencies such as the California Highway Patrol, San Bernardino County Probation, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, and Department of Homeland Security Investigations.

The primary objectives of Operation Consequences are to reduce violent crime, disrupt and dismantle criminal street gangs, and apprehend individuals involved in illegal firearm possession, manufacturing, and trafficking. This operation is part of an ongoing effort to enhance public safety and maintain the well-being of communities in San Bernardino County.
