Two Manteca men were taken into custody on Thursday after the Manteca Police Street Crimes unit served a search warrant and discovered an unregistered handgun, prescriptions drugs, and cannabis for sale.
Angelo Chavez, 19, and Diego Chavez, 21, were arrested and charged with a number of crimes including possession of an unregistered firearm, possession of a firearm while in possession of a controlled substance, possession of prescription drugs without a valid prescription, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of cannabis for sale, and possession of more than an ounce of cannabis.
The search, which was conducted on a resident on the 1500 block of W. Woodward Avenue, resulted the seizure of various forms of cannabis, scales, controlled prescription medication, and unregistered Glock handgun equipped with a 50-round feeding drum, and an undisclosed amount of currency.
Both young men were released from San Joaquin County Jail on Friday.
