The Fontana, California Police Department on Thursday made a rather interesting discovery: a known gang member had a gun range under their house that was accessible by a man hole.
According to the police department, they were executing a search warrant when the discovery was made. Multiple firearms and thousands of rounds of ammo were discovered as well.
“We will never give up on keeping our community safe and free of violence,” the police department said in a statement. “We are the champions at Hide n Seek and no manhole will help you. If you hide we will find you. If you run you will go to jail tired. If you do crime in our city, we will hunt you in the pursuit of justice for our community.”
The department shared their discovery on their Facebook, along with the perfect piece of advice for the detainee:
"We strongly recommend that you put as much effort as you did in your underground cave, into becoming a productive member of society. You will thank us later for this advice."
Police explained the discovery in an interview with KNBC-TV out of Los Angeles:
The @FontanaPD served a search warrant on a residence of a known gang member. While searching the house a man hole was located that led to an underground hiding area and an additional underground area that was being used as a shooting range. Numerous weapons & ammo found. #NBCLA pic.twitter.com/WffFJNeafA— Alexvnews (@alexvnews) February 9, 2019
Remember when anti-gunners tell us that gun control laws work? If that was the case, this gang member wouldn't have had a "high-capacity" magazine – anything over 10 – for their AR-15. This is just another example of criminals not following the law, especially the ones involving firearms.
