VICTORVILLE, Calif. — Between May 27, 2023, and June 2, 2023, investigators from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department – Gangs/Narcotics Division, along with deputies from patrol stations, served 7 search warrants and contacted suspects at various locations in Hesperia, Victorville, Colton, and Loma Linda.
During the service of search warrants and additional contacts, investigators seized 40 firearms, one of which was a ghost gun, and over one and one-half pounds of methamphetamine. Investigators made 12 felony arrests.
The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors authorized funds to assist with county-wide crime suppression. The intent is to provide additional funding to the Sheriff’s Department, allowing for increased law enforcement services related to quality-of-life issues affecting the communities in our county.
Operation Consequences will focus on conducting targeted crime suppression operations in the High Desert and the Sheriff’s jurisdiction surrounding the city of San Bernardino. There are currently 6,721 parolees at large in California and 564 parolees at large in San Bernardino County.
The operation will include personnel from the Sheriff’s Gangs/Narcotics Division, Specialized Enforcement Division, and Patrol Stations, as well as California Highway Patrol, San Bernardino County Probation, and Department of Homeland Security Investigations.
