Two people are now in custody after police found weapons and suspected drugs in searches on Monday. According to the Oakland Police Department, one is believed to be involved in a February shooting.
Officers executed search warrants at two locations, and found firearms, including semi-automatic guns, assault rifles, and multiple high-capacity ammunition magazines, police said.
Substances believed to be cocaine and marijuana and cash were also seized.
The search warrants were served by Oakland’s Ceasefire Division, the division developed to reduce gang-related shootings and homicides while strengthening police-community relations.
Police said they also found evidence that connects one suspect to a February shooting. The second suspect was arrested due to a weapons violation.
Officers with the Violent Crimes Operations Center assisted with taking both suspects into custody. Police are still investigating this incident. Police are asking anyone who has more information about the crimes to reach out to 510-238-3426.
