LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police say a sweep by a new task force targeting street racers resulted in arrests, citations for illegally modified cars and the seizure of five vehicles.

The Daily News reported Sunday (https://bit.ly/1y56U7m) that the operation last week focused on locations in the San Fernando Valley known to attract racers.

The sweep overnight Wednesday into Thursday involved 30 officers and a helicopter ended with five arrests and 19 citations for driving an illegally modified vehicle.

Sgt. Greg Fuqua, who is in charge of the new unit, tells the newspaper he expects to carry out similar sweeps every few weeks as the task force makes its presence known.

The unit was announced last month at a meeting of the Porter Ranch Neighborhood Council.
