    You gotta be kidding me! Doesn't HPD have some kind of surveillance after all these attacks?

      I was wondering the same thing.

      If they didn't have surveillance prior to these attacks, why wouldn't they have it now?

        My best guess would say it's directly related, time to hit the Vagos hard.

          I have relatives that live out in Hemet, and they sure are praying(along with myself) that no LEO's/innocent people get hurt, and that whoever is behind all of this get(s) caught. Its just crazy how all of this is happening in relatively a small city.

          I am willing to bet that once the dust settles on this, and the bad guys are caught, Hollywood will try to make a movie out of this.

            I reeeaaallllyyy Hope that Hemet PD mgm't is putting officers in Two man units, instead of One man cars right now. The concern is also for "bogus calls" that might have snipers about........

              Arrests made in attacks on Hemet police
              April 20, 2010 | 3:19 pm

              Hemet police said Tuesday that they had arrested 16 people while serving search warrants at dozens of locations as part of an investigation into recent attacks against police and city property.

              A Riverside County task force of local, state and federal officers took the suspects into custody after raiding about 35 locations and seizing 16 firearms, along with other evidence, officials said.

              Hemet City Manager Brian Nakamura said authorities had not made positive connections yet between the suspects and the recent attacks. But he added that authorities expected to file charges.

              "We've apprehended the individuals we believe are related to this crime," Nakamura said.

              In recent months, the attacks have involved booby traps set at the headquarters of the Hemet-San Jacinto Valley Gang Task Force, officials said. In December, a gas utility line was redirected to fill the offices with gas. Officials said a spark could have triggered a devastating explosion.

              In February, a "zip gun" was hidden near the gate to the task force office and rigged to fire. When a gang officer opened the gate, the weapon went off; the bullet narrowly missed him, authorities said.

              In early March, police said, a "dangerous" device was found near the unmarked car of a task force member. That was followed by an arson attack on several city trucks March 23.

              Authorities were also investigating whether an early-morning fire last week at a Hemet police shooting range was another attack on the department.

 The fire at the remote training facility off Warren Road broke out shortly after 2 a.m. Much of the building was destroyed in the blaze.

                Here's another one.

                LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Southern California homes of dozens of white supremacists were raided Tuesday as part of a probe into a string of potentially deadly booby trap attacks targeting police officers, authorities said.

                Federal and local officers converged on 35 homes and took 16 people into custody in Riverside County for a variety of crimes, including weapons, narcotics and parole violations, Hemet police Capt. Dave Brown said.

                None of the arrests were directly related to the booby trap attacks that have plagued the small Hemet Police Department since New Year's Eve.

                "But we hope some (arrests) will lead us to our suspects," Brown said.

                District Attorney Rod Pacheco said everyone arrested was connected to white supremacist groups.

                "They are upset with our aggressive posture against all gangs," Pacheco said. "White supremacist gangs have been very violent, especially toward law enforcement."

                Hemet police have been targeted at least three times. In one case, a ballistic device strapped to a fence at the gang unit compound sent a bullet within inches of an officer's face.

                In another incident, someone rerouted a natural gas line at the compound, filling the building with flammable vapor. No one was hurt.

                Four city trucks were set ablaze, and an explosive device was attached to an unmarked police car after an officer went into a convenience store.

                A fire at a police rifle range was being investigated as a possible arson.

                Pacheco stressed the investigation was ongoing, and detectives were exploring a variety of theories about who was responsible for the booby traps.

                Hemet police officials previously suspected the Vagos motorcycle gang may have been behind the attacks. But a series of arrests did not lead to any charges.

                Tuesday's raids started before dawn and lasted throughout the morning. Most of the homes were in Hemet and the surrounding San Jacinto Valley, about 90 miles southeast of Los Angeles.

                Historically a rural retirement community, Hemet saw rapid growth during the real estate boom but has since been ravaged by the foreclosure crisis.
