Dozens of Fresno police officers swept through a southeast Fresno neighborhood Wednesday morning in search of gang members that officers say are terrorizing a neighborhood.
The sweep was directed at an area near Fifth Street and Butler Avenues. Officers served warrants and seized two weapons. Lt. Mark Salazar said the Fifth Street Bulldogs were the object of the searches. He said the gang is well entrenched in the area, and it is well known that any time gang graffiti is taken down, residents may face retaliation from drive-by shooters.
Officers continue to investigate the gang.
