      Busted: SE Fresno Gang Member Arrested For Pot, Weapons

      Police on Saturday arrested a gang member who was selling marijuana from his southeast Fresno home while armed with multiple firearms.

      Denna Thong, 27, was arrested after police with the Fresno Police Department's MAGEC unit arrived at an apartment in the 4000 block of East Dwight Avenue around 9 p.m. Police said they detected a strong smell of marijuana coming from the apartment.
