HANDGUN AND DRUGS FOUND DURING A WARRANT ARREST

Berkeley, California (Tuesday, January 11, 2022) - In the early morning of January 5th, officers discovered an un-serialized handgun (AKA Ghost Gun) along with powder cocaine after arresting a man for an outstanding warrant.

On January 5th at 3:23 am, an officer spotted a vehicle parked off of the roadway in a grassy area near Ashby Avenue and Frontage Road.  When the officer conducted a records check of the vehicle’s license plate, the officer discovered that the owner had an outstanding warrant for his arrest.

When the officer approached the vehicle, the officer found the owner at the hood of the vehicle—performing repairs/maintenance.  After confirming the man’s identity, the officer arrested the man for his outstanding warrant.  When officers searched the vehicle, they found an un-serialized handgun (AKA Ghost Gun)—with an extended magazine and several baggies of powder cocaine.

On January 6th, the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office charged the suspect (a 27-year-old man) with PC 25400(a)(1)—possession of a concealed firearm, PC 32310(c)—possession of a large capacity magazine, and HS 11350(a)—possession of a controlled substance.
