Shots-fired call leads deputies to cache of weapons, ammo

By Kim Minugh

Sacramento County sheriff's deputies responding to a fairly routine call last week came home with a not-so-routine haul: three guns, a slew of ammo and some drugs, too.

Deputies responded to the 3100 block of Laurelhurst Drive in Rancho Cordova on July 26 after callers reported shots fired from a residence. Upon arriving, they saw a man in front of the residence, who quickly fled inside, according to a sheriff's report.

Deputies followed him inside and found quite the cache: A 12-gauge sawed-off shotgun, three spent .22 casings; live .22 ammo; .38 ammo, 9 mm ammo, and .223 ammo. Outside, they found a .22 and a .38 revolver that had been thrown over a fence to an adjacent yard, the report states.

And they also found marijuana, methamphetamine, and rock cocaine.

Deputies arrested Daniel Cano, who turned 25 while in the Sacramento County Main Jail, on suspicion of a host of drug- and weapons-related charges. He remains in custody, held in lieu of $120,000 bail.
