YAKIMA, Wash. -- YPD's Gang Unit says they've pulled a violent gang member off the streets nearly every day in the past month.

Police made 28 arrests in 30 days.

24 of those arrests were violent gang members. They included wanted criminal,Jacob Lucey, and the suspects involved in last month's downtown homicide.

"We're out there looking for them and during the course of looking for them we find others that are wanted as well. So, a lot of it has to do with having good luck, good police work and being at the right place at the right time," said Sergeant David Cortez.

Police say they also arrested the suspect who assaulted a state trooper.
