October 26, 2006|From Times Wire Services

About 420 officers from 17 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies fanned out across Sacramento County on Wednesday, searching for more than 330 suspected gang members in what officials said was the largest such sweep ever in the region.

By nightfall, they had made more than 50 arrests on suspicion of parole, weapons or drug violations, and had seized more than 20 guns along with pounds of marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine.

The crackdown was prompted by a surge in gang-related slayings.
