We reported on March 1 that dozens of people were protesting in an effort to remove a person believed to be an alleged sex offender from the property.
However, the police believe that the group came together due to inaccurate information circulating online.
Detectives investigating the mayhem incident have made extensive arrests as part of their ongoing investigation.
The force entered five properties in the areas of Clydebank, Glasgow, Port Glasgow, Yshaw and Wellington by warrant on Friday 17 March.
Four men aged 21, 27, 45 and 48 and three women aged 31, 36 and 43 were arrested and charged with harassment and rioting.
They are due to appear at Dumbarton Sheriff Court on Monday 20 March 2023.
The incident occurred around 6.50pm on Tuesday, 28 February when police responded to reports of “disorder and vandalism” involving up to 300 people in Graham Street, Bruchel, Dumbarton.
Detective Inspector Bernadette Walls said: “I would like to thank the local community in Bruchel for their support and cooperation during this investigation.
“Crime affects the whole of society and can cause fear and anxiety, and we aim to address these issues.
“It is important that local residents, workers and visitors in the area feel safe and reassured that they can go about their daily lives free from the fear of violence and antisocial behavior.”
Investigations are ongoing and additional officers remain in the area to provide reassurance to the local community and if anyone has any concerns they can contact these officers.
