A man was arrested Tuesday in Fairfield on suspicion of four offenses including illegally possessing a sawed-off shotgun, police said. Ryan Albertsen, 34, was arrested after police went to his home in a trailer park in the 1400 block of West Texas Street because someone reported a disturbance that involved Albertsen. Albertsen’s home is not far from Fairview Elementary School.

According to police, Albertsen had a warrant out for a misdemeanor offense. He was arrested, but before going to jail he allegedly asked officers to get his cellphone from his trailer. When officers went inside the trailer, they allegedly found drug paraphernalia strewn around and a sawed-off shotgun resting against a wall, police said. Albertsen was prohibited from having or owning a gun because he had a restraining order against him, police said. Officers obtained a search warrant for Albertsen’s home.

During a search they allegedly found ammunition and drugs, police said. Albertsen was taken to the county jail on suspicion of possessing the gun, drugs, drugs while armed and for the warrant.
