A member of the National Guard was arrested by Salinas police Wednesday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and burglary in connection with a pair of Sunday morning home invasions, police said. On Sunday at about 11 a.m., police were dispatched to the 1600 block of Madrid Street and the 100 block of Mayfair Drive in response to two reports of home invasions. The armed suspects tried and failed to gain entry to the Madrid Street home about 10 minutes before they tried again across town, this time successfully, on Mayfair Drive, police said. Officers served a search warrant at the home of one suspect, 22-year-old Steven Ramirez, where they found a loaded revolver, ammunition and a loaded rifle propped against the living room couch. Police said the revolver is believed to be the weapon used in the attempted home invasion. Ramirez, an Army National Guardsman, could also face criminal charges from the Army after police discovered a large quantity of military equipment in the home, including ballistic body armor, several high-capacity magazines and rifle optics, police said. The primary suspect in the home invasion case, 21-year-old Daniel Ramirez, is still outstanding because he was not home at the time police served the warrant. Ramirez was booked into Monterey County Jail.
