FPD Arrests 5 for weapons, narcotics and identity theft

On January 2, 2017 at approximately 9:30 AM, Fullerton Police Officers responded to an apartment in the 1900 block of Deerpark regarding a family dispute. The caller indicated that a male was armed with a handgun inside the residence and he was causing a disturbance and threatening the reporting party.

When officers arrived, they had to force entry into the apartment. Officers detained the male, who was refusing to remove his hands from his waistband and he was combative du...ring the detention. Once safely detained, a loaded handgun was found in his waistband where he had been concealing his hands. Stolen mail, along with identity theft making materials, narcotics, and cash were all found in plain view inside the residence.

Fullerton PD Property Crimes Detectives and Directed Enforcement Team Detectives responded to assist and to seek a search warrant for the location.

As a result of this initial investigation and collaboration between the two FPD investigative units, an additional four individuals, two males and two females, were placed under arrest throughout the next three days. Additionally, more stolen mail was recovered, identity theft making materials were recovered, a substantial amount of narcotics were recovered, and two loaded hand guns were taken off the streets.
