LIVERMORE -- Six people, including two gang members, were arrested Thursday after a search warrant in a home yielded narcotics and firearms, police said.
The raid happened at 10 a.m., when police served a search warrant at 1068 Coronado Way. The six individuals arrested are expected to be charged with various narcotics offenses and resisting arrest, according to Livermore police Officer Dave Blake.
Two of those arrested are suspected of belonging to the Norteno gang, Blake said.
The arrests were the result of work by the newly formed Special Operations Unit within the Livermore Police Department. The unit was formed little more than a month ago, Blake said, and is assigned with pursuing narcotics and gang-related complaints.
They served the warrant with help from the East County SWAT team.
Police are asking anyone wanting to provide information about narcotics and gang-related activity to call a tip line at 925-371-4780 and to provide as much information as possible. Useful information includes license plate numbers, a vehicle description, residence addresses, suspect information including descriptions, and a callback number.
Callers may remain anonymous, Blake said.
If citizens see a crime in progress, they are asked to call 911.
