The seizures and arrests in Arcadia, Canyon Country and North Hollywood were made Friday as a result of a two-day investigation that began after a tipster alerted police.
Investigators said they took possession of several weapons and four vehicles, including a Ferrari.
The suspects were held on $2-million bail each.
