Several law enforcement agencies executed a search warrant in Oakland on Wednesday morning, arresting 11 people and seizing numerous weapons and stolen property, according to the California Highway Patrol. Crews from the Alameda County Regional Auto Theft Task Force served the warrant at about 10:45 a.m. at a building on 36th Avenue, CHP officials said.
During the search, authorities detained 23 people who were at the building. Seven of those people were arrested for outstanding felony warrants, and another four were arrested on weapons charges or for possession of stolen property, according to the CHP.
Officers seized seven firearms and recovered stolen property including two trailers, two car engines, pieces of construction equipment and a large generator, CHP officials said. The items had been reported stolen from locations throughout the Bay Area. The search warrant was obtained as a result of an investigation that started in December.
Oakland police, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, the county animal control and probation departments, the CHP, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives participated in the execution of the warrant.
