Chandler Raid Nets Weapons, Drugs, 2 Arrests

Authorities arrested two people and seized more than 100 pounds of marijuana along with automatic weapons during a raid Friday morning in a quiet Chandler neighborhood.

Police found 15 handguns and fully-automatic weapons at the home where the two people, a man and a woman, were arrested, according to Elias Johnson, spokesman for the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities forced their way into the home around 6:15 a.m. near Ray and McQueen roads, Johnson said. The suspects were asleep when the raid began.

Authorities used a no-knock search warrant, which needed court approval, because they felt there was a high risk of violent retaliation from those inside the home, Johnson said.

Weapons were found scattered throughout the house, including an AK-47, an Uzi, and an unspecified projectile launcher, Johnson said. One weapon was found in the pantry of the home.

The raid was part of a long-term investigation that included several federal and local agencies such as the Drug Enforcement Administration, Chandler Police Department and the Pinal County Narcotics Task Force, according to officials.

Some neighbors described the two arrested as quiet people who kept to themselves. The neighbors also said they never noticed anything suspicious in the peaceful neighborhood.

The DEA was not willing to comment on the investigation because it was still ongoing.-[source]
