Alleged members and associates of an Oakland gang that Police Chief Howard Jordan said is probably the most violent group of young people he’s seen were arraigned earlier this week on a variety of charges, including conspiracy to commit murder.
Oakland police joined forces with state and federal agencies to arrest several suspected violent offenders in a crime sweep Friday morning, a police spokeswoman said.
The suspects were wanted for various crimes including murder, felony assault, robbery, and burglary, police said. A number of felony probation and parole violators were also arrested.
Agents from three federal law enforcement departments on Monday raided Oaksterdam, the medical marijuana university in downtown Oakland, as well as other marijuana industry businesses in Oakland.
