Deputies arrest 20-year-old after finding 300 firearms, narcotics

Sheriff’s Ramona deputies found narcotics and about 300 firearms at a residence in the 300 block of Amigos Road Thursday evening, Aug. 7, and arrested a 20-year-old man, reported Lt. Hank Turner of the sheriff’s Ramona station.

The deputies were helping California Highway Patrol follow up on a hit and run suspect when they noticed some of the narcotics and firearms, said Turner.

Anthony Gordon was arrested around 5:30 p.m. on suspicion of charges that included felon possessing firearms, possession of narcotic controlled substance, under the influence of controlled substance while possessing firearm, and possessing switchblade knife, according to the sheriff’s department website. He was booked into San Diego Central Jail.

In addition to the firearms, a grenade was found and the sheriff’s bomb arson unit was called, but the grenade was inert, Turner said.

Among the controlled substances that deputies found were heroin, LSD, concentrated cannabis and ecstasy, said the lieutenant.

Bail has been set at $50,000 for Gordon, and arraignment was scheduled for Aug. 12, according to the sheriff’s website.

  1. So, let me get this straight; "according to the sheriff’s department" the "deputies found" 300 guns and narcotics?
    Also, the deputies were there to "follow up on a hit and run suspect when they "noticed" some of the narcotics and firearms." OK, first of all, Anthony Gordon kept his inherited gun collection from his recently deceased father secured in safes.
    As far as the "suspect," which was actually not Anthony, but a snitch that has yet to be identified; this was weeks after the hit and run occurred before the deputies came to Anthony’s house to “follow up.”
    It looks as if the inheritance of his home is being targeted for the illegal confiscation of his property.
    One has to wonder how the deputies “found” the illegal narcotics and “300 guns” with no probable cause mentioned and without a search warrant.
