Eight people were held overnight after Fresno gang officers picked them up for probation and parole violations.

The bust happened late Thursday night at a home on East Garrett Avenue in Southwest Fresno.

Police also picked up two loaded weapons, and several containers of prescription drugs and cocaine.

A sergeant tells Action News officers were conducting proactive patrols in the area of Walnut and Jensen when they saw a drug deal. We're told the suspects then ran from the officers and hid inside that home on Garrett Avenue.

Sixteen people were eventually pulled from the house, and eight were taken into custody
