Firearms, ammunitions and drugs recovered from home on the 1800 block of S. Drake St., Stockton, Aug. 1, 2012
STOCKTON, CA - A drugs and guns bust in Stockton Wednesday yielded a disturbing photo of the 6-year-old son of one of the suspects pointing a handgun that looked like the real thing, police say.
The picture of the boy was found on the cellphone of Raul Gonzalez, 22, who, along with his brother Ricardo Gonzalez, 18, was booked into jail on weapon and drug charges, said Stockton police spokesman Officer Joe Silva.
The pair were arrested during the execution of a search warrant on a residence on the 1800 block of S. Drake Street. Silva said officers and a SWAT team seized an assault rifle, a handgun with a high capacity magazine, several other gun magazines, thousands of rounds of ammunition, 74 grams of crystal methamphetamine, 10.8 grams of cocaine, 100 ecstasy pills, more than $2,100, scales and packaging material at the home.
Raul Gonzalez' son is seen in the photo in a car seat holding a handgun which appears to be the one recovered on Wednesday, according to Silva.
The search was part of an ongoing narcotics and firearms investigation, Silva said.
