“On the evening of September 26, 2022, deputies from the Wasco and North Area substations located a suspicious vehicle in an orchard.
Due to a recent increase in theft from agricultural areas, the deputies stopped to investigate and found the vehicle was occupied by three men from the Wasco area.
Further investigation revealed the discovery of a non-serialized AR variant rifle, also known as a ghost gun, a high-capacity drum magazine, a loaded handgun and a substance suspected to be methamphetamine.
The three men were arrested on weapons and drug charges and booked at the KCSO Central Receiving Facility.”
