26 arrested in West Oakland anti-gang sweep,Ghost Town gang, in effect turning Ghost Town into a ghost town

09:24 | ,

26 arrested in West Oakland anti-gang sweep: "'We have had a huge impact on the Ghost Town gang, in effect turning Ghost Town into a ghost town,' Israel said. 'We're not leaving this area. We're never again going to let these Ghost Town gang members take this area back.'
Members of the gang are responsible for numerous crimes, including murder, assault, robbery, carjacking and narcotics and weapons offenses, police said.
Although the gang's turf is generally bounded by 25th and 35th streets, Martin Luther King Jr. Way and West Street, violence caused by its members has spread to different parts of Oakland as well as to Richmond and Berkeley, police said.
'Suspected Ghost Town members have held the community captive for several years by fear of violence and intimidation,' said Assistant Police Chief Howard Jordan.
In 2008, police carried out a similar operation against the Acorn gang in West Oakland. 'Acorn does still have a gang, but it is considerably less active, less violent than it was two years ago when we began that operation,' said police Capt. Anthony Toribio"
