Four arrested in Tulare County for firearms, drugs felonies

Law enforcement seized a large number of guns, ammunition and drugs from the suspects.

Four people have been arrested in Tulare County for firearms and drugs offenses. 

California Attorney General Rob Bonta announced Wednesday that authorities seized thousands of rounds of live ammunition and several firearms. 


The big picture: Law enforcement served multiple search warrants in Tulare and Goshen after determining a suspect was prohibited through the Armed and Prohibited Persons database. 

  • The investigation revealed illegal activity with the suspects involved in drug trafficking and manufacturing activities. 
  • Law enforcement seized two shotguns, four rifles, six handguns, around 20 large-capacity magazines, 14 standard capacity magazines, over 2,200 rounds of live ammunition, 150 pounds of liquid codeine, around 200 pounds of cannabis, psilocybin mushrooms, ecstasy, a hash oil lab and a large amount of cash.
  • The suspects were booked into the Tulare County Detention Facility and face charges for possession of an assault weapon, possession of a controlled substance for sale and child abuse. 
  • The Tulare County District Attorney’s Office will prosecute the case. 

What they’re saying: “These arrests demonstrate exactly why the Armed and Prohibited Persons System is vital for the safety of our communities,” Bonta said. “In our efforts to retrieve guns from one prohibited individual, we uncovered an entire network of illegal activity. I am grateful for the work of our Bureau of Firearms agents and local law enforcement partners in getting these illegal weapons out of the hands of this prohibited individual and taking down this criminal operation.”
