The Federal Bureau of Investigations and the Oakland Police Department served sixteen high-risk narcotics and weapons related search warrants Wednesday night, according to a police spokeswoman. Of the 16 warrants served overnight, 13 warrants were served at various locations in Oakland, according to Oakland police spokeswoman Johnna Watson. The other three search warrants were served in Hayward, San Leandro and Antioch, Watson said.
The search warrants led to multiple arrests as well as the recovery of weapons and narcotics, according to Watson. Helicopters circled overhead as portions of Seventh and Eighth streets were shut down for at least 90 minutes on Wednesday night. The operation concluded shortly after 1:00 a.m. this morning with no injuries or use of force reported, Watson said.
