SAN LEANDRO — Detectives from the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man for illegal possession of assault weapons and methamphetamine. The suspect is a fourth-grade teacher.

Five assault weapons were confiscated from inside Stimson’s residence. One of the weapons seized is a so-called ghost gun. It is an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle that was apparently homemade, with no serial number or other identifying markings.

At the time of his arrest, detectives also found in Stimson’s possession an undisclosed quantity of suspected methamphetamine. This was also recovered as evidence.

Stimson was booked on two weapons-related criminal charges. One charge PC 11370.1 (A) is for possession of a firearm and a controlled substance. His second charge PC 30605 (A) is for possession of assault weapons.

Presently, Stimson is no longer being held in custody, and an arraignment for his charges is pending in August.

This is not the first time that Stimpson, a heavy-set man weighing 320 pounds, has been in trouble with the law. Stimson was previously arrested for DUI/alcohol. He was convicted and sentenced to three years of probation for alcohol-related reckless driving.
