FRESNO, Calif. — Three people are in jail and several illegal guns, including two found hiding in plain sight, are off the street following a city-wide gang sweep in Fresno.

Covering all angles, police showed up in force to the Brookhaven neighborhood in Southwest Fresno. A search warrant covering nine locations led police to recover four guns, including two loaded handguns wrapped in plastic bags and stored in a tree right near the street.

“We know that gang members store their guns in places, on top of tires, inside of cars, outside of cars, waiting for their rivals to show up,” said Fresno police Lt. Mark Salazar.

SWAT and probation officers joined members of the street violence and gang units to search those homes and cars Wednesday.
