Two illegal guns were seized from suspected gang members in two separate arrests, Santa Rosa police said.
On Friday, felon Wayne Gregory Patrick, 49, was arrested at a Rutledge Avenue home after officers found him in possession of a loaded .380 caliber pistol with the serial number scratched off, Sgt. Tommy Isachsen said.
At the same time, officers arrested his niece, Ashley Florence Patrick, 21, on a felony warrant for suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon with force likely to cause great bodily injury, he said.
In a separate case related to gang vandalism, officers on Wednesday arrested Tony John James Jr., 20, at a home on Lavell Village Circle.
He was found to be in possession of a stolen, sawed-off .22 caliber rifle fitted with a high capacity magazine, Isachsen said.
