A citywide gang enforcement operation in Pomona wrapped up Sunday and netted 24 arrests, police said.
The 10-hour sweep, conducted between 4 p.m. Saturday and 2 a.m. today, was the sixth-such operation in the past year, police said.
Assisting Pomona police were the U.S. Marshall's Service, California Department of Corrections, Los Angeles County Probation Department, the District Attorney's Office and a multi-agency law enforcement task force covering the eastern San Gabriel Valley.
"The purpose of the operation is to keep constant pressure on gang members, while developing additional intelligence related to unsolved gang crimes, and arresting those found to be committing nay crimes or those with outstanding warrants," said Lt. Mike Keltner of the Pomona department.
He said the operation included probation and parole compliance checks.
Three guns, 23 grams of methamphetamine and 23 grams of marijuana were seized during the operation.
