San Francisco, California – The drug activity noticed by authorities led to the arrest of two individuals in San Francisco who were found to be in possession of guns and illegal high-capacity magazines as well, according to the police department.
A vehicle with multiple people inside was stopped by officers on patrol near Cayuga Park in the city’s Outer Mission district just before 8 p.m. on Sunday, according to a social media post from the San Francisco Police Department’s Ingleside station. The patrolling officers saw the occupants of the vehicle using drugs.
A person who left the vehicle was apprehended, and a second suspect who was connected to the vehicle’s activities was also apprehended. When the first suspect denied having a handgun, he started physically resisting the officer who was arresting him. While two cops tackled the guy, the others drove away in the car.
During the investigation, authorities discovered that the first suspect was in possession of a loaded and concealed handgun that was equipped with an illegal high-capacity magazine, and that the second suspect was in possession of another hidden firearm that was tucked into his waistband.
There were two vehicles nearby that were linked to the two arrestees, and both had narcotics, money, and other things in them. While officers were still on the scene, an alert was sent concerning a group of suspects who were running from a car in the neighborhood, according to the police. Officers responding to the location located the car and recognized it as the one that left the scene when the first two suspects were apprehended.
A discarded knife and a bag containing a weapon loaded with an illegal high-capacity drum magazine, as well as other significant evidence, were discovered by an officer.
Multiple weapon and drug charges were filed against the unidentified individuals.
