Police Drug Raid Leads to Arrests

RICHMOND — San Francisco police arrested two Richmond residents after raiding their home and finding a trove of drugs and firearms, police said.  

36-year-old Randy Ashford and 30-year-old Nakema Killingsworth were arrested on a litany of drug and gun charges.

At roughly 4:30 a.m., Wednesday August 26, police raided a home on the first block of West Macdonald, near Richmond Parkway. After serving a search warrant, police found two assault rifles, two pistols, an extended rifle, pistol magazines, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, a pill making press, hundreds of pills, and what police believe to be methamphetamine, police said.

Ashford and Killingsworth were charged with conspiracy, child endangerment, possession methamphetamine, possession of controlled substance, possession of controlled substance for sale, two counts of carrying illegal loaded firearms, three counts of firearms used during the commission of a felony, two counts of forgery of prescription drugs. More charges might be filed at a later date, SFPD spokesperson Officer Grace Gatpandan said.

Since last October, Ashford has collected numerous criminal charges — ranging from minor offences such riding a bicycle on the wrong side of the road to felonies similar to his most recent charges: possession of cocaine base for sale, selling narcotics, loitering with intent to sell, felony committed while on bail, and pot possession, according to available records.

San Francisco police obtained the search warrant based on the findings on an investigation in their city. Richmond police assisted in the early morning raid. Ashford and Kilingsworth were booked into custody at the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office.
