SACRAMENTO — Assault weapons and drugs were discovered in a Sacramento home Saturday, leading to the arrest of a gang member and his fiance.
The Sacramento Police Department was tipped off to the location of the drug house when a ShotSpotter system picked up a gunshot in the area of Moorgate Court and Newgate Drive.
On Saturday, officers searched the home of a gang member on probation and his fiance, according to Sgt. Andy Hall. Hall reports the residence was just a quarter-mile away from an elementary school.
Several children, including a newborn, were living in the home, which was found to have a quarter-pound of methamphetamine and two AR-15 assault weapons with high capacity magazines inside of it as well as an illegal marijuana grow outside.
Both parents were arrested on suspicion of child endangerment, operating a drug house and resisting arrest.
