8 Arrested in Major Gun and Drug Bust in Fresno

Police found two loaded guns and a lot of crack cocaine packaged for sale.
Fresno Police made a huge drug and gun bust in Southwest Fresno...near Jensen and Walnut.

Fresno’s Magec team was on a regular patrol a neighborhood known to be infested by gangs.

Police say they saw someone running, and that led to a short chase, which led them to a group of parolees and known gang members that police say were up to no good.

Police found two loaded guns and a lot of crack cocaine packaged for sale.

Police initially detained sixteen people but arrested eight.

They range in age from 17 to 30.

Police say several of those arrested have been arrested a few times before... for the same weapon and drug related offenses.

"I've personally been here 50 times... we came in with k-9 units,” said Sgt. Paul Cervantes.

Crime Scene Investigators will be sending evidence to the department of justice.
