Weapons found in storage unit


Thirty weapons, some of which were stolen, were discovered by Placentia police while they served a search warrant at a storage unit, according to the Orange County Register.

The unit was located in the 500 block of Crowther Street in Placentia. The weapons were discovered while investigating a man for allegedly selling drugs and stealing motorcycles.

Chris Anderson, a Placentia K9 officer, stopped the suspect Thursday night after a traffic violation and found he had an outstanding warrant. Anderson had been investigating him for on-going criminal activity.

Sgt. Bryce Anderson of Placentia Police said the suspect was involved with selling drugs and the possession of weapons and stolen motorcycles.

Police learned from earlier surveillance that the suspect was living in a vacant industrial business in the 70 block of Monroe Way in Placentia. Another man and his girlfriend were also living in the vacant area.

Bryce said a Japanese race bike, marijuana-growing operation, heroin and cash were found at the business. It was during their investigation that police discovered the storage unit that held weapons and drugs.

The three suspects were taken into custody and sent to Orange County jail.
