The following day, a traffic stop was conducted by a Palmdale unit, and one suspect was taken into custody for possessing two of the stolen assault rifles.
An Operation Safe Streets (OSS) gang detective was assigned the follow- up investigation and authored a three location search warrant.
This was done to identify other suspects, as well as attempt to locate the missing items.
In the evening hours of March 7, the warrants were served by Lancaster and Palmdale OSS Teams, as well as the Partners Against Crime (PAC) Unit from Palmdale Station.
During a search at one of the locations, all of the missing ammunition was located, as well as the two stolen shotguns and one additional stolen handgun, which was taken from a different burglary.
An additional suspect was also arrested for being one of the primary suspects from the original burglary.
The names of suspects were not immediately released due to further investigation.
