Two men were arrested in connection with weapons that were recovered from a storage area in Redwood City on Wednesday, according to police. At about 11:54 a.m., officers from the East Palo Alto Police Department’s Special Duty Unit, Menlo Park Police Department’s Narcotic Enforcement Team and state parole agents developed credible information that led them to search an undisclosed storage area in redwood City, police said.
In a search of the storage area, officers discovered and seized seven assault rifles, 10 handguns and over 5,000 rounds of ammunition, police said. Two men were arrested in connection with the arsenal of weapons and are being held on parole and probation violations at the San Mateo County Jail, according to police. Police said the investigation was a result of “Operation SMART,” a collaborative agreement designed to address gang-related violence occurring in Menlo Park and East Palo Alto.
