#AceDailyNews says according to CBSLocal News Report: Gang Members Arrested In Anaheim, Pico Rivera; Dozens Of Guns Seized In Raids By FBI, SoCal Law Enforcement Agencies: January: 13, 2022 at 8:50 am

During more than 25 controlled purchase operations between July 2019 and August 2020, a confidential source purchased methamphetamine and nearly two dozen firearms from several members of the gang, according to the FBI. The DEA seized six more firearms, including rifles and pistols, rifle scopes, AR-15 upper receivers, one suppresser, and a pipe bomb.

Seven weapons were also seized during Wednesday’s raids.

A total of sixteen people were charged in the case, three of whom were previously in custody, and three others who are fugitives.

In a separate case, seven members or associates of the Pico Nuevo 13 gang, which authorities say is based out of Pico Rivera but also operates in North Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley, were charged Wednesday. Two of those gang members were arrested in an operation Wednesday, three were already in custody and two more remain at large, according to the FBI.

Pico Nuevo 13 is known for “violent tactics” in trafficking narcotics and weapons, according to the FBI. Twenty-two weapons were seized during the investigation into Pico Nuevo 13.

The FBI says they have seized 180 guns – 37 of which were untraceable “ghost guns” – in the past six months of investigating gang-related cases.

The National Weather Service reports that winds of up to 60 miles per hour are possible Thursday and Friday in Los Angeles and Ventura counties, and across the Inland Empire: The conditions will create an increased risk for wildfires and could down trees and power lines, the NWS reports. A fire weather watch will be in effect from 2 p.m. Thursday to 10 p.m. Friday for much of the Southland

In response, SCE reports that it could be forced to implement precautionary public safety shutoffs to 76,491 customers, similar to shutoffs SCE did about a month ago……………..That includes more than 42,000 customers in San Bernardino County, nearly 16,000 customers in L.A. County and over 12,000 in Ventura County

Some of the cities which could be effected include Santa Clarita, Moorpark, Simi Valley, Sylmar, San Fernando, Azusa, Rancho Cucamonga and Banning.

The shutoffs could occur between 2 p.m. Thursday and 3 p.m. Friday. To see if your address is in the shutoff area, click here.

Beginning in August and lasting through October, there were several heat waves in California which sparked rolling blackouts for the first time since 2001, and helped contribute to the spread of a historic number of wildfires up and down the state which destroyed thousands of homes and forced tens of thousands of people to evacuate.

SCE notified California state regulators that its equipment may have been to blame for sparking the Silverado Fire, which broke out east of Irvine late last month, burning 13,400 acres and forcing more than 90,000 to evacuate their homes.

Also last month, Ventura County fire investigators reported that the Easy and Maria fires, which broke out in October of 2019, were both caused by electrical equipment failures. In the Easy Fire, SCE equipment was to blame, officials said.

In November of 2019, while the Easy and Maria fires were still burning, SCE reached a $360 million settlement admitting that its equipment was also responsible for starting the 2017 Thomas Fire and the 2018 Woolsey Fire.
