POMONA — Police have netted multiple arrests during two recent gang sweeps on the streets of Pomona following a string of violence and murder in the city.

Gang officers arrested 78 people, 59 of which were felony arrests, in two separate sweeps, officials said.

The first operation happened the weekend of March 15 and 16 while the second was last Friday and Saturday.

Pomona police officials didn’t release which police agencies were involved in the sweep but would only confirm it was a multi-agency operation.

“There was an assortment of drugs confiscated during the sweep,” said police spokesman Sgt. Hector Rodriguez. “Quite a bit of marijuana, methamphetamine as well as cocaine were taken off the street along with six guns. ”

The sweeps were organized and conducted after a recent spree of homicides plagued city streets, officials said.
