Thirteen people have been arrested and many more arrests are expected after a seven-month long drug and stolen property investigation centered in Gilbert.
Gilbert along with Chandler, Mesa and Tempe police all worked together and executed search warrants at four locations Wednesday morning uncovering stolen property like guns, bikes and other items along with heroin, meth and marijuana.
Three of the locations are homes in Gilbert near Gilbert and Elliot Road, the other is an apartment in Chandler. Tuesday, two other homes in Phoenix were busted that are also connected to the investigation.
Sgt. Jesse Sanger of Gilbert Police said that residents in the neighborhoods were sick of the crime that was taking place and were instrumental to taking down this ring.
Sanger said the victims of the theft span across the Valley including break-ins to homes, businesses and vehicles.
It is unclear how many people may be involved in this ring. The investigation is on-going.
