Suspects Arrested After Drugs, Gun and Children Found in Home
SACRAMENTO—Two people were arrested on Tuesday, February 18, following a search by Sacramento County probation officers that resulted in a gun and large amounts of drugs recovered. Four children were also found in the home and taken into protective custody.
According to a probation department press release, Jonathon Synclair Britt, 29, and Angelica Monica Torro, 28, were arrested after officers visited Britt’s Sacramento home for the search.
Officers found more than two pounds of methamphetamine with an estimated street value of $19,000, and seven grams of heroin with an estimated street value of $700. Officers also recovered a loaded handgun and more than $28,000 in cash.
Probation officials said the arrests were notable because of the presence of the children as well as the substantial amounts of narcotics and cash.
Britt was on post-release community supervision, a part of California’s prison realignment program that requires county probation department officers, rather than parole officers, to supervise some offenders released from prison.
According to Main Jail booking records, Britt and Torro both were booked on one charge each of possession of narcotics for sale, possession of non-narcotic controlled substances for sale, and child endangerment. Britt also was booked on a charge of possession of a firearm by a felon, records show. They both are being held without the possibility of bail due to the seriousness of the crime.
