Vancouver police detectives investigating property crimes say they searched the home of a convicted felon and retrieved five firearms.
Officers with the Vancouver Police Department’s Property Crimes Unit, the Safe Streets Task Force and Neighborhood Response Teams, with assistance from the Southwest Regional SWAT Team, served a search warrant at a residence in the 1000 block of Southeast 146th Court on Monday, according to a police department press release.
The investigation was developed by a property crimes detective who discovered that a resident of the home on 146th Court, Fred Ignacio Anthony Munoz Jr., who is a felon barred from having firearms, was in possession of multiple guns, police said.
“The search of the residence resulted in seizure of four pistols, one rifle, various associated ammunition, rifle-building parts and evidence of controlled substance possession,” the police department said.
Five people were inside the home when the warrant was served. Munoz was arrested on suspicion of five counts of unlawful possession of a firearm.
Another man, 38-year-old Matthew J. Cook, was arrested on a state Department of Corrections warrant.
