Sacramento County sheriff's officials arrested five suspects and seized a cache of illegal firearms and marijuana plants during an operation in Wilton this morning.
Deputies assigned to the "Impact Division" - the agency's grant-funded gang unit - and the SWAT team served a search warrant at a home in the 9800 block of Clay Station Road about 7 a.m. today, said sheriff's Deputy Jason Ramos.
Inside the home, deputies found indoor and outdoor marijuana cultivation operations, and evidence to suggest the marijuana was being sold, Ramos said. They also recovered a dozen guns, including a modified assault weapon with a high-capacity magazine.
According to Ramos, arrested were Dang Hang, 39; Lo Saechao, 36; Kou Vue, 32: Jimmie Mue, 29; and Yer Yang, 28. They face a variety of charges, including illegal possession of an assault weapon, tampering with identifying marks on a firearm, unlawful manufacturing of a high-capacity magazine and possession of marijuana for sale.
