Clovis chop shop raid leads to 7 arrests

Seven Peckerwood gang members are in custody following the raid of a chop shop Thursday in Clovis, police said.

The gang members were not only dealing in stolen auto parts, but selling methamphetamine, ecstasy and firearms, Sgt. Timothy Tietjen of the Help Eliminate Auto Theft Team said.

Officers seized one-quarter pound of methamphetamine and four firearms at the shop on the 8100 block of North Sunnyside Avenue.

In the past two weeks, officers have made 30 felony arrests of suspected auto thieves, Tietjen said.
