Turlock’s Special Investigations Unit took a suspected drug dealer off the streets and confiscated an illegal assault rifle and short barrel shotgun.

The Turlock Police Department’s Special Investigations Unit served a search warrant on April 12 in the 300 block of Minaret Avenue. The warrant was obtained as a result of an investigation into suspected drug sales taking place at the residence.

During a search of the home, investigators found a small amount of narcotics, an illegal assault rifle, an illegal short barrel shotgun and a .25 caliber pistol inside a room belonging to 34-year-old Albert Glancy. In addition to these items, evidence of drug sales was located within the room, according to the police.

Glancy, a previously convicted felon, was not at the home during the service of the warrant.

On April 16, detectives assigned to the Special Investigations Unit discovered that Glancy was staying at a motel in the 700 block of Twentieth Century Boulevard. When officers went to the motel in search of Glancy, he was arrested without incident.

During a search of his motel room, detectives found an additional loaded firearm, 90 grams of suspected methamphetamine and 3 grams of suspected heroin.

Glancy was booked into the Stanislaus County Jail and charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm, possession of an assault rifle, possession of a short barrel shotgun and possession of narcotics for sale.

“The Special Investigations Unit was formed to investigate some of the most serious criminal offenses that affect our community, including drug dealers, gang members, and other violent offenders. Their hard work and dedication has resulted in the arrest of a suspected drug dealer and convicted felon who was peddling narcotics while armed with some very dangerous weapons. Their continued work has made for a safer Turlock,” said Turlock Police Chief Ninus Amirfar.
