District Attorney heads up gang sweep

January 8, 2009

They’re called the shot callers and they were the targets of a sweep Thursday in Bakersfield.

Local law enforcement agencies swept through southwest bakersfield today with warrants in hand, looking for leaders of local street gangs.

It’s the latest in a series of sweeps designed to go after men who orchestrate criminal activities within their respective gangs.

“We had approximately 50 officers looking for 19 individuals on our target list. They’re all from the Country Boy, Eastside and Westside Crips and the Bloods. They’re all on status, meaning they’re on parole, probation or we have arrest warrants. We’re after as many of them as we can get,” said Kern County District Attorney Ed Jagels.

Two members of the Eastside Crips, a Westside Crip, and a member of the Bloods street gang were arrested yesterday.

Jagels said one of the most notorious members of the Eastside Crips was found in violation of his parole. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
