Local News

STOCKTON, Calif. (KTXL) — Several blocks surrounding a Stockton neighborhood were evacuated Wednesday after San Joaquin County deputies found numerous explosives in a home.

The San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were at a Stewart Street home to serve a restraining order, which also included a move-out order, when 35-year-old Ronald Radford allegedly physically attacked a deputy.

Once Radford was in custody, officials say deputies saw several booby trap-type explosives and various weapons in the house, including handguns, long guns and an ax.

Neighbors told FOX40 they had seen “odd” goings-on at the Stewart Street home, including things burning on the lawn and a fire in the garage a few weeks prior.

They also said Radford lives in the house with his mother, who was not at home at the time of the incident.
