The Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff J-team (a specialized patrol unit) recently conducted a stop on a vehicle in Martinez.

A subsequent search of the car found a half-pound of methamphetamine, powder heroin, tar heroin, several types of prescription pills, large denominations of cash, a loaded semi automatic firearm and two shot guns, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The J-Team and Narcotics Unit later served a search warrant at the driver’s residence in Antioch.

A search of the home found additional firearms, drugs, currency and stolen property. All six people at the residence were arrested on various charges.

The estimated street value of all of the drugs seized is approximately $20,000.

Specialized patrol unit? They have probably been studying these guys for a while and tailed them until the driver did something minor to warrant a traffic stop. Maybe a narc was involved. Either way, we don’t know half the story.

Those long rifles are hilarious, I’m pretty sure the second one from the bottom is a single barrel shotgon with no trigger guard.

Truth @#1 What’s your point? I don’t care that they call them a “specialized patrol unit” what difference does that make? Makes no difference to me that they may have been following them waiting for a “minor” incident to occur. What matters to me is that more drugs and illegal guns are off the streets. Illegally obtained money is confiscated and maybe stolen property will be returned to it’s owners. I say a job well done !!!!

Don’t care who seized them, or how. Just glad they got them off the street!

Agree with hmm, it would be nice to know where ALL the other comments went, if stuff was just out of control or was it an accident?

The one on the bottom is a .22 cal kid’s rifle it’s called a “Crickett” from Keystone Sporting Arms. It’s ok.

I got my girl a CZ “Scout” .22 rifle. Same Jr. size but very high quality & it is a 5 shot, magazine fed, bolt action rifle with a 2.5 scope. It is the most accurate .22 I’ve ever used.

Hey Mayor what happened to the rest of the comments? Wanted to tell a poster he might be right. The Jennings 9 that I think that pistol at the top is, is now made by a company called Jimenez. http://jimenezarmsinc.com/janine.htm
Good call whoever that was.
The pump is the only useful thing in the picture. Besides the cash.

14 Rico June 13, 2014 at 10:39 AM

That is $20k worth of product? I am in the wrong business.

15 hmm June 13, 2014 at 11:10 AM

There was nothing bad being said in the old comments…so why delete? Also…this was on channel 2 the other day but is nowhere to be found on their site. Fishy!

16 Dixie June 13, 2014 at 11:12 AM

With odds like those i should carjack more often!

17 Big C June 13, 2014 at 11:56 AM

it will be back on the street in no time, cant trust co co counties task force. they resell back the drugs and run brothels

Let’s give thanks to the gun lobby for ensuring that plenty of firearms are available cheaply, easily, and for anyone who wants one.

19 Lizzie June 13, 2014 at 6:11 PM

Yes where are the other posts?? I thought I was losing my mind…lol..

20 et-al June 13, 2014 at 6:27 PM

If you’re going to make up fake names you should try to do better than the “gun lobby”.

21 Michelle June 13, 2014 at 6:40 PM

What did happen to the other posts?

22 anon June 13, 2014 at 7:22 PM

“Gun Lobby” would make an excellent name for a store.

23 Atticus Thraxx June 13, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Aspirin, gonna explain this with small words ’cause clearly your struggling. It is not the gun lobby that proliferated guns in our culture. Firearms are not easy to get, are not cheap and not everyone who wants one can get one.

6.5k max with the guns and material on the right

This probably creates more crime by increasing the price of heroin via decreasing the supply, thereby augmenting the need for junkies to rob and steal. Maybe that’s why my car was broken into last week, junkies too broke for a fix. Who is to blame, the junkies or the cops who drive up the price of the drugs?
