Guns and ammunition were among the items confiscated during an operation targeting at-large parolees in Fresno on Thursday, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said.
Seven parolees, four of whom were fugitives, were also taken off the streets during Operation Heat. Special parole agents from Fresno and Tulare counties joined the Fresno Police Department in the sweep administered by the CDCR.
A rifle, body armor, ammunition, heroin and other drug materials were seized during the exercise.
Operation forces collected data on local gangs through field interviews and through photographs of members of known street gangs.
Never miss a local story.
Fifty-five personnel were involved in the Fresno-area operation, which ended peacefully with all members accounted for, the department said.
