Five people believed to belong to the Bulldog gang were arrested Saturday after a police officer spotted a stolen car driven past him.
The four men and a woman were found inside The Palace Inn along Parkway Drive.
The police officer arrived there after he spotted the stolen car, though no one was inside the vehicle.
The watchful eye of nearby surveillance video helped the officer track the alleged driver, 26-year-old Clovis man Adam Abrams.
