After receiving a plea from neighbors concerned about gang members and drug sales in a southwest Fresno neighborhood, police Friday arrested a 54-year-old man and cited his mother for allowing marijuana to be grown on her property, police reported.
James Williamson, a Country Boy gang member, was booked on charges of sales and cultivation of marijuana, Sgt. Tim Tietjen said. His mother, Mary Williamson, 73, was issued a $53,000 citation for the home on Sampson Avenue near Martin Luther King Boulevard, Tietjen said. The narcotics unit conducted surveillance of the area and witnessed gang activity before a warrant was served.
