Noise complaint call to police ends in guns drawn in Woodland

Woodland police said they took a man into custody after a simple call about excessive noise turned potentially dangerous.

Officers were called to 91 California Street on Thursday about 8:30 p.m.. There, they found Carlos Cornejo, 32, working on his car in the driveway.

While speaking with Cornejo about the noise issue, Cornejo turned and "exhibited an imitation firearm, which resembled a chrome semi-auto pistol," according to a press release from Woodland police.

The officers drew their handguns and took Cornejo into custody.

Police said a small amount of methamphetamine, wrapped in plastic, was found in one of Cornejo's socks. And a search of Cornejo's car allegedly turned up a loaded handgun on the driver's side floorboard, according to police.

Cornejo, a convicted felon, was arrested on drug and weapon charges.
