Sacramento Bee: 20 Arrests in Crime Spree Targeting Sacramento’s Asian Community

20 people have been arrested in a string of armed robberies and home invasions in Sacramento’s Asian community.

The Sacramento Police Department says the suspects don’t appear to be connected to each other, although many used the same tactics.

Among those facing charges were several already in custody who were connected to the crimes.

With the arrests has come a decrease in crime. There was a 43% decrease in crime in the hit communities last month.

Police have made a concerted effort to meet with members of the Asian community. The department has held seven outreach meetings offering safety tips and raising awareness of the crime spree. Police have also increased patrols and a spokesperson says that will continue.
