Mayor Foster attends PD Press Conference Announcing 11 Arrests

This afternoon Mayor Foster joined Chief McDonnell and the Long Beach Police Department for a press conference announcing that the LBPD conducted an early morning operation today that resulted in the arrest of 11 individuals and the recovery of 6 handguns and 1 rifle.

“Gang Enforcement detectives have been investigating a series of shootings that have occurred since December 2010.

During the course of these investigations, detectives developed information that led them to believe that the shootings were related by suspects or the weapons involved.

Detectives began to focus on one of the oldest Hispanic gangs in Long Beach who claim territory in this particular area of Central Long Beach, the East Side Longo Gang.

I would personally like to thank the Long Beach Police Department for their commitment to combating gang crime and ensuring a safer Long Beach. I would also like to thank the assisting local and federal agencies for their contributions to this investigation.” – Mayor Bob Foster.
