A pair of Antioch brothers were arrested on various drug and weapons violations Thursday morning after a raid by state and local law enforcement officials.
The Contra Costa County Anti-Violence Support Effort (CASE) team, along with deputy sheriffs and police officers, served a search warrant on a home on the 4900 block of Parkgreen Circle in Antioch at 9 a.m., according to the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Office.
Patric West, 23, and Cedric West, 25, were arrested and booked into jail on felony charges including being felons in possession of a firearm, being a prohibited person in possession of ammunition and various drug violations. Both are being held in county jail in lieu of $170,000 bail.
Authorities discovered two firearms, ammunition, more than 10 pounds of marijuana, as well as other illegal drugs and an undisclosed amount of cash while searching the property and a vehicle that was parked on the street.
This wasn’t the first time Antioch Police have made a raid on the home.
On August 22, 2012, Antioch SWAT served a search warrant at the residence for suspected narcotic sales. When police arrived, someone tossed a loaded handgun out of a bedroom window and a shotgun was found hidden in the home, according to police.
That search also found at least three to four ounces of ecstasy, a small amount of marijuana, scales, and a large amount of packaging supplies.
Patric, Cedric, and a third brother, Fredric West, were arrested on drug and weapons charges. At the time, Cedric was on felony probation for an armed robbery conviction in 2009. Patric was also arrested on September 15 on charges of domestic battery.
