“SUMMARY: Between October 28, 2023, and November 3, 2023, investigators with the Sheriff’s Gangs/Narcotics Division, Specialized Enforcement Division, and multiple patrol stations, along with personnel from California Highway Patrol, San Bernardino County Probation, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, and Department of Homeland Security Investigations continued the targeted crime suppression efforts of Operation Consequences.
During the one-week period, which included a focused operation in Victorville and Apple Valley on October 28, 2023, 16 search warrants were served in San Bernardino, Apple Valley, Covina, Chino Hills, San Gabriel, Adelanto, Victorville, Fontana, Rialto, Riverside, and Running Springs. During those contacts, investigators contacted gang members and persons prohibited from possessing firearms. Investigators made 29 felony arrests and seized 66 firearms, which included 10 ghost guns.
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 and parole and probation checks, in the High Desert and the Sheriff’s jurisdiction surrounding the city of San Bernardino. The operation will include personnel from the Sheriff’s Gangs/Narcotics Division, Specialized Enforcement Division, and patrol stations, as well as California Highway Patrol and San Bernardino County Probation, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, 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.
