132 Arrested In October Probation Sweep

During the month of October, Los Angeles County D.I.S.A.R.M. officers arrested 132 probationers and confiscated 56 firearms and over $7 million in illegal drugs and drug money, announced Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich. 

In conjunction with local law enforcement, 1,308 searches were conducted of probationers who, as a condition of probation, are subject to unannounced searches targeting guns, drugs and other contraband. 

Since its implementation in February of 2000, the D.I.S.A.R.M. program has seized more than 8,800 weapons and more than $396 million in illegal drugs and drug money and resulted in nearly 18,000 arrests. Nearly 10 percent of probationers searched in this program have been found to be out of compliance with the terms of their probation. 

D.I.S.A.R.M was initiated by Supervisor Antonovich following the tragic August 1999 shootings at the North Valley Jewish Community Center and the murder of a postal worker by Buford Furrow, an armed felon on probation from Washington State.
