MODESTO, Calif.—A gang task force has arrested 19 people in a sweep of suspected gang members in Modesto and Ceres.

Authorities say the suspects — all believed to be members of the Norteno gang — were taken into custody Wednesday when law enforcement officials from various agencies served warrants on 10 different locations.

During the sweep, authorities say they seized eight firearms, including a MAC-10 submachine gun, a sawed-off shotgun, some ammunition and police scanners.

Two small marijuana growing operations were also found, along with a small amount of methamphetamine and scales.

Stanislaus County prosecutors say those arrested are facing a series of charges, including possession of methamphetamine for sale, participation in criminal street-gang activity, illegal weapons possession and violating parole.
