(KSL News) Investigators in Weber County are talking about a large-scale crackdown on a gang house at 3170 Kiesel that took place Friday night.

Fifty SWAT, gang and drug officers surrounded the home and ended up arresting 15 of the 39 inside.

Weber-Morgan narcotics strike force Lt. Darren Park says there was a bit of a fight. "They did resist officers. Not all of them, but there's always a few of them that decide they wanna put on a show for their friends," he said.

Investigators say the home has been a major problem. Drugs and a sawed-off shotgun were found in the home. Police say there have been numerous drive-bys in the neighborhood, and officers have responded to the home 188 times.
