A traffic stop in central Fresno on May 12 led detectives from the Multi-Agency Gang Enforcement Consortium to arrest four people on suspicion of possessing drugs for sale, having guns and auto theft.
The detectives stopped a vehicle near First Street and Hammond Avenue at 4:12 p.m. and found driver Pey Hang, 35, had a suspended driver’s license. His passenger, True Yang, 26, had a felony warrant for auto theft. Detectives searched the vehicle and found methamphetamine and sales paraphernalia hidden in door panels and under the steering column.
Detectives later obtained a search warrant for the suspects’ homes. At Hang’s house, on East Hammond, detectives found two shotguns, two pistols and a marijuana garden in the backyard belonging to Neng Hang, 28, who lived at the house. He was arrested for cultivating marijuana and being armed.
A search of Yang’s home on East Cornell Avenue uncovered four shotguns. Yang’s sister, Bao Yang, 28, was arrested on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine.
