LATHROP — A 12-member Manteca-Ripon SWAT team and five undercover officers served a major arrest warrant at a home in the 400 block of Manila Road in Lathrop just minutes after 7 a.m. Tuesday.

Manteca Street Crimes Unit Sgt. Chris Mraz said the case began in a Manteca neighborhood where officers were investigating suspected drug activity that led them to the Lathrop address near Manthey Road and a storage locker in Lathrop.  Guns were found in the home and in the storage locker, he said.

Officers located an illegal AR-10 assault rifle with four fully loaded clips along with shotguns and other long rifles in their search of the two Lathrop locations.  Two semi-automatic hand guns and more than half a pound of methamphetamine were found with $2,400 in cash that was confiscated.

A semi-automatic .9 mm Ruger had been reported stolen out of Reno, Nev., Mraz said.

Maximo Cabasug Paminsan, 42, and Danelle Sheree Casuga, 27, were charged with possession of methamphetamine for sale, being armed with meth in their possession, possession of stolen property (firearm), and possession of an assault weapon.

Paminsan was transported to the San Joaquin County Jail in French Camp where he is being held in lieu of $225,000 bail on four felony charges.  Casuga was released with a promise to appear in court.  His court date is set for Thursday in the Manteca Branch of the San Joaquin County Superior Court.
