Monterey County sheriff’s deputies arrested a King City man on weapons and drug charges this week, sheriff’s officials said. Sheriff’s deputies learned over the course of a month that 27-year-old King City resident and convicted felon Antonio Criado was in possession of a stolen semi-automatic shotgun, according to the sheriff’s office.
The sheriff’s SWAT team executed a search warrant at Criado’s residence in the 46000 block of Meadowbrook Drive around 8:10 p.m. on July 31, officials said. During the search, sheriff’s crews found Criado in possession of a prohibited weapon as well as a marijuana grow, according to the sheriff’s office.
Criado was arrested and later identified him in a lineup as a person in possession of a semi-automatic shotgun. Sheriff’s officials said he later admitted to possessing the gun in addition to brass knuckles, a knife and marijuana. Criado was also charged with driving on a suspended license.
