A probation search at a Turlock residence turned up a cache of firearms, including two that had previously been reported stolen.
Around 9 a.m. Saturday, the Turlock Police Department’s Special Investigations Unit conducted a probation search at a home in the 400 block of Locust Street.
While searching the home an investigator spotted a gun in one of the bedrooms and the unit obtained a signed search warrant, said Turlock Police Lt. James Silveira.
The search turned up seven firearms, two of which had been reported stolen, Silveira said. One of the guns was a short-barreled shotgun, which is illegal in California.
Additionally, investigators located over 20 pounds of marijuana and items used to manufacture concentrated cannabis.
Roy Dean Cox, 51, of Turlock was arrested for various weapon charges, including being a felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a stolen firearm, and possession of a short-barreled shotgun, manufacturing a controlled substance, and being in possession of marijuana for sale.
Cox remains in custody at the Stanislaus County Jail in lieu of a $275,000 bail.
