Modesto CA: Search warrants served in Stanislaus County.
 
Responding to a recent general increase in violent gang related criminal activity throughout Stanislaus County, local law enforcement agencies have combined their resources and collaborated together to increase their effectiveness and individual efforts. This joint effort is a proactive investigative measure to combat gang activity and developed into the service of several search warrants executed today. These mutual efforts were in response to the broad rise in criminal street gang incidents throughout the Stanislaus County area. 
 
Numerous agencies participated in the service of these search warrants including the Modesto Police Department, Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department, Ceres Police Department, Turlock Police Department, and the FBI. Although this is a continuing joint endeavor, an immediate result of these combined efforts resulted in the search warrants served throughout Stanislaus County earlier today.
 
Vigorously combating any increase in criminal activity, sharing criminal knowledge, and prudently using valuable resources represent a few of the beneficial outcomes of combining the resources of all involved agencies. This is an ongoing investigative effort between all involved agencies and detectives as they continue to work throughout the day processing the results of these search warrants.
