A multiagency gang and probation sweep resulted in the arrests of 27 juveniles in southwest Clovis.

The two-day effort that ended Saturday focused on an area bounded by Winery Avenue to the west, Barstow Avenue to the north, Clovis Avenue to the east and Ashlan Avenue to the south.

The sweep included nearly 20 Clovis Police Department officers along with officers from Fresno police, Fresno County Sheriff's Office and Fresno County adult and juvenile probation.

Police focused on areas with gang-related problems and illegal parties where drugs and alcohol were offered to minors.
