WINDSOR, Calif. - Sonoma County sheriff's detectives arrested four people and found guns, drugs and cash Tuesday morning at a south Windsor residence, a sheriff's sergeant said.
A two-week investigation led to the serving of a search warrant for guns and drugs at the residence in the 600 block of Strech Lane, Sgt. Spencer Crum said.
Detectives were watching the residence when one of the residents, Fabian Markham, 36, arrived in a Toyota Camry. Detectives found 1.19 grams of methamphetamine, two cellphones, $541 in currency and written notes indicating drug sales in hidden compartments of the Camry, Crum said.
Markham was detained while a sheriff's SWAT team arrived around 10:15 a.m. to search the residence.
Two other residents of the home, Terence Martin, 31, and Brittani Paulson, 32, as well as Faith Bolema, 26, of Sebastopol, would not exit the residence until the SWAT unit set off two loud flash bang devices, Crum said.
Detectives then searched the residence and found three handguns, six shotguns, and four rifles including a short-barrel assault rifle. Most of the weapons were loaded, and detectives also found high-capacity magazines, a bulletproof vest and ammunition in boxes and cans, according to Crum.
Detectives also found 45 grams of crystallized methamphetamine, 40 grams of heroin packaged for sales, pills, scales, cellphones, packaging supplies, counterfeit currency, smoking pipes and $8,373 in currency, Crum said.
Detectives also called Sonoma County Animal Services to take custody of Martin's dog that had several infections, Crum said.
Martin was booked into Sonoma County Jail under $60,000 bail on alleged felony drug and weapons offenses and for animal cruelty. Markham was booked into the jail under $40,000 bail on suspicion of felony possession of drugs for sales and transportation.
Paulson was booked on a misdemeanor offense of possession of drug paraphernalia and was released on a $1,000 bail bond. Bolema was issued a citation for misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and a probation violation and was released.
