70 arrested in San Francisco in sweep of felons 

San Francisco police say 70 felons have been taken off the streets as part of a sweep targeting wanted suspects.

A police spokesman says San Francisco police officers were joined by San Francisco sheriff's deputies, state parole agents, and probation officers in making the arrests throughout the city on Wednesday.

Sgt. Daryl Fong says of the 70 taken into custody, 20 were on parole.

One person was arrested for possession of a firearm, while several were taken into custody on outstanding warrants for violent crimes, including manslaughter and robbery.

Four of those arrested were wanted on federal warrants.

Police say they'll be conducting similar operations in the future targeting wanted suspects.
