ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Police announce more arrests in a weekend raid on an east Albany nightclub.

The Albany Gang Unit says it should serve as a warning to other clubs participating in illegal activity. The Gang Unit arrested 17 people at Coco Nutt's Lounge early Saturday morning when the SWAT team and other officers raided the club in the 400 block of Blaylock Street. Police originally reported 13 arrests. Tips from citizens about drug and gang activity led police to get a search warrant. They seized semi-automatic hand guns and various narcotics in the raid.

"When all these entities get together and we go out looking for individuals who's committing crimes such as these and we make these significant arrests it sends a good message that we're not going to tolerate it and the city of Albany is tired of some things that have been going on and so we're going to arrest those offenders and hopefully change the mindset," said Lt. Tony Moore, Albany Police Gang Unit.

The 17 suspects face charges ranging from probation violations to gang participation. Three of the 17 arrested were under the age of 21.
