SUMMARY: Between February 10, and February 16, 2024, investigators from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department – Gangs/Narcotics Division, along with deputies from patrol stations, served 15 search warrants and contacted suspects at various locations in San Bernardino, Redlands, Highland, Loma Linda, Adelanto, and Barstow.

During those contacts, investigators contacted gang members and persons prohibited from possessing firearms. As a result, investigators seized over 600 pounds of suspected methamphetamine, and 22 firearms, five of which were ghost guns. A total of 17 felony arrests were made.

The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors authorized funds for 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. The operation will include personnel from the Sheriff’s Gangs/Narcotics Division, Specialized Enforcement Division, patrol stations, California Highway Patrol, 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.
