APPLE VALLEY • An overnight sweep in Apple Valley resulted in several arrests of juveniles who were out after curfew.

Seven juveniles were arrested for curfew violations during Saturday night’s operation, which began at 10 p.m., according to a news release from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Apple Valley station.

Juveniles as young as 14 were cited and released to parents or guardians during the operation, which included Apple Valley deputies, Apple Valley School Police and the San Bernardino County Probation Department.

“Some were found loitering in James Woody Park, the others in shopping centers and school parking lots from about 11:30 p.m. to about 2 a.m.,” Investigations Sgt. Shawn Henry, with the Apple Valley sheriff's station, said.

The curfew for juveniles in the town of Apple Valley is from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Deputies also stopped 29 vehicles, towing four for license violations, and three citations were issued for other crimes during the seven-hour operation, the release stated.
