STOCKTON –

The Stockton Police Department completed its three-day “violence suppression mission”, named “Operation Heatwave” on Sunday night.

Operation Heatwave, which was a continuation from missions held within the last year, was a mission to help stop crime and violence in Stockton, as well as the rest of San Joaquin County. The concentration of the mission focused on finding people belonging to groups and gangs, identified in the earlier “Operation Ceasefire”, who are involved in gun violence.

Members of several crime unites, including the Stockton Police Department Gang Violence Suppression Unit, Community Response Team, County Wide Gang Task Force, California Highway Patrol, San Joaquin Co. Sheriff’s Office, Lodi Police Department, Manteca Police Department, United States Marshals Service, FBI Task Force, State Parole, and California Department of Corrections participated in the operation.

Over the three days, a total of 65 arrests (40 felony and 25 misdemeanor) and 64 traffic stops were made, ten guns were taken, twelve parole searches and three probation searches occurred, and over 22 grams of meth and more than one grams of crystal meth were seized.
