The San Jose Police Department’s Special Operations METRO and MERGE Units conducted an investigation that culminated in the execution of a search warrant in which a large quantity of narcotics and several firearms were seized. On 1/9/2013, at approximately 7:00 A.M., METRO and MERGE Officers executed a search warrant at a residence in the 1700 block of Ross Circle based on information that an occupant was dealing narcotics and in possession of multiple firearms. During the warrant execution, officers recovered the following evidence:
* Approximately $65,000 dollars in cash
* A Smith & Wesson M&P-15 assault rifle (AR-15)
* Four high capacity assault rifle magazines (30 rounds each)
* A stolen SIG Sauer P229 .40 caliber semiautomatic handgun
* An automobile lock-picking kit * Over 2 pounds of marijuana
* Over 200 pills of Oxycontin and Vicodin
* Miscellaneous narcotics sales indicia
Officers determined that Suspect Washington had prior felony convictions with violence which made possession of his firearms a felony. Officers booked Suspect Washington for being a felon in possession of firearms, felon in possession of ammunition, possession of high capacity magazines, possession of burglary tools, possession of marijuana for sales, possession of Oxycontin for sales, possession of narcotic paraphernalia, possession of assault weapons, and resisting arrest.
“This is an excellent example of the outstanding work that our officers do on a daily basis,” stated Chief Chris Moore when he learned of the arrest. “The amount of meticulous planning and discipline that goes into a case like this can not be emphasized enough. I am extremely proud of these officers for taking an obviously dangerous suspect of the streets of our City.”
