Last week, deputies were called to the 20000 block of Panoche Road for a report of a man with a gun who had assaulted a male victim.
The suspect drove off, but deputies found him a short time later. During a search of the suspect’s vehicle, deputies found two loaded firearms, drug paraphernalia, and nearly 32 grams of methamphetamine.
Deputies later served a search warrant of the suspect’s property. During the search, they found 33 grams of methamphetamine, multiple firearms, drug paraphernalia and an illegal marijuana grow.
He was booked into jail for carrying a loaded firearm, possession of a controlled substance while armed, assault with a deadly weapon, vandalism, and exhibiting a firearm in a threatening manner. The illegal grow is being disassembled.
