Agents and special investigators of CDCR’s Los Angeles area Fugitive Apprehension Team and the Division of Adult parole Operations-Los Angeles County recently participated in a Pomona Police Department gang sweep that resulted in 24 arrests.

Agents and officers from several agencies beside CDCR also joined in the one-day high visibility saturation enforcement operation, said Parole Administrator Joe Martinez of DAPO, LAC Los Angeles GPS District. The operation targeted gang hot spots within the city of Pomona.

The purpose of the operation was to obtain information on unsolved gang crimes, identify individuals involved in the crimes and address additional crimes encountered that resulted in the suppression of gang related offenses within the city, he said.

Also seized were three handguns, 23 grams of methamphetamine and 23 grams of marijuana, Administrator Martinez said.

The Fugitive Apprehension Team is a part of the CDCR’s Office of Correctional Safety, a force of special investigators and parole agents who conduct complex investigations and surveillance involving escapees, inmates and parolees suspected of major crimes and/or gang activity.
