Ten people were arrested during the execution of a narcotics search warrant at a possibly gang-related residence in Livermore Wednesday afternoon, according to Livermore police. The Livermore Police Department’s Special Operations Unit worked in conjunction with the East County Tactical Team to conduct a narcotics search at a residence in the 1600 block of Chestnut Street at 4:30 p.m. Officers closed a portion of Chestnut Street during the search of the residence to ensure the safety of Livermore residents, police said.

Of the 11 suspects detained by police, 10 arrests were made. Police recovered two firearms and made arrests for possession of a concealed firearm, possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest, police said. The ten subjects were booked into Santa Rita jail, police said.
