22 arrests in SoCal gang sweep

blankociated Press | September 23, 2011

Los Angeles, CA — Twenty-two people are in jail after a Southern California law enforcement sweep targeting rival Compton gang members.

More than 300 Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies and officers from the South Gate, Inglewood, Gardena, Whittier and Anaheim police departments carried out Thursday morning raids at 32 locations.

Sheriff’s Lt. Richard Westin tells City News Service that the search and arrest warrants stem from a bitter feud between rival gangs and involve murders, shootings and blankaults.

Seventeen men, three women and two juveniles are in jail.

Child welfare officials took custody of three children at locations targeted in the raids.
