November 19, 2023 - San Diego Police Department officials report that teamwork by San Diego PD’s Special Operations Unit (SOU) and Ghost Gun Apprehension Team (GAT) led to the arrest of a felon who had a cache of guns and illegal drugs in a home he shared with young children.
This week, GAT, SOU, and ATF executed a search warrant at a home on the 7900 block of Hummingbird Lane after learning that a man was in possession of un-serialized guns or so-called ghost guns. There was also concern that he was dealing drugs throughout San Diego County.
Because he lived in the home with his wife, two children, and a baby, our teams were very methodical about how to make the arrest. Once the children were out of the house, our teams surrounded the home and with help from K9s and San Diego PD’s helicopter ABLE, they were able to take him into custody.
A search of the home turned up two pounds of methamphetamine, approximately eight pounds of psylocibin (mushrooms), more than 2,0000 [sic] methamphetamine pills, approximately 100 rounds of ammunition, handgun magazines, drug paraphernalia, and four handguns. A search of his storage unit then led to the discovery of a revolver with its serial number removed, a fully loaded extended magazine, and two additional pounds of psylocibin (mushrooms).
He was booked into County Jail on multiple charges including Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Child Endangerment, Identity Theft, and several drug-related offenses.
