FRESNO, California – Three men and a teen were arrested Saturday night after allegedly brandishing guns in southwest Fresno.
Upon arrival, officers set up a perimeter around the apartment complex, but then saw the suspects running away.
They were all detained, police say. The men are as identified as Dustin Garcia, 25; Israel Yanez, 29; Alfonso Hernandez, 23 and a 17 year-old juvenile male.
All three adult males were found to be convicted felons, police say, and all four are self-admitted Bulldog gang members.
A duffel bag was found in an alleyway that was thrown over the fence and landed in a lawn maintenance trailer. Police say the bag had two loaded weapons, a sawed off 12 gauge shot gun and a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol.
All three males were arrested and booked into the Fresno County Jail on suspicion of various gun-related crimes. The teen was booked into Juvenile Hall.
This seizure marks 68 firearms recovered off the streets by officers in southwest Fresno this year.
