VICTORVILLE – Victorville Police Department deputies conducted an operation in order to crack down on street racing and other illegal activities associated with it.
On Wednesday, August 8, 2018, at around 9:00 p.m. the San Bernardino County Auto Theft Task Force (SANCATT) assisted in the operation cracking down on these violations in the area of Bear Valley and Amethyst Roads in the City of Victorville.
