A gang sweep early Thursday saw a busload, literally, of arrests for drug trafficking. As part of a multi-agency effort, "30 to 40 members of the Black P Stone gang in Baldwin Village, affiliated with the Bloods," were taken to the Sports Arena complex south of downtown with TV crews recording "a police bus on scene" helping to manage the quantity of arrestees, reports LA Now and a Los Angeles Police Department Advisory.

A LAPD/FBI joint news conference is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. to discuss the arrests and indictments of the gang members and their associates.
