Woodland gang agents seize teenager’s treasure trove of illegal weapons
The Woodland Police Department’s Gang Task Force recently seized the treasure trove of guns illegally held by a teenager and hundreds of cartridges.
In a press release, the Police Department said officers were sent to a house in the 700 block of East Street after a couple said their 19-year-old son suffered from mental health issues and threatened to hurt yourself. They also said he was seen putting a supply of guns in their trash, according to the police department.
Gang task force officers executed several search warrants in other locations based on information gathered at the couple’s home, yielding five AR-type rifles and six semi-automatic handguns, as well as hundreds of bullets.
Officers also found evidence of weapon manufacturing, as well as three partially completed AR-style rifles and three partially completed pistols.
The 19-year-old was taken into police custody and charged with illegal possession of assault rifles. The police did not disclose his name.
