Three Gerber men and two Red Bluff residents were arrested Tuesday in an operation police say yielded guns, methamphetamine, power tools and stolen Bureau of Land Management signs.
Officers, investigating a series of burglaries going back six months, served warrants at Way Out Lane, Lakeside Drive and Kimball Road, Red Bluff Police Sgt. Jason Beeman said.
At the Way Out Lane residence, officers arrested Ronald William Luck, 41, and Lisa Ann Celano, 49, both of Red Bluff, on suspicion of being felons in possession of ammunition. Luck was also arrested on suspicion of drug paraphernalia and Celano on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine and a firearm.
Ronald Mauris Anderson, 41, was arrested on suspicion of violating parole, while Daryl Andrew Bentley, 24, was arrested on an outstanding warrants and Ilario Luis Diaz, 28, on a pair of outstanding warrants. All three were from Gerber, Beeman said.
Officers searched a Lakeside Drive residence where Luck stays and a Kimball Road storage unit rented by Luck.
Property seized by officers included a pair of rifles, a pistol, methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, a number of power tools and signs belonging to the BLM and the Department of Fish and Game.
Police have yet to confirm the recovered property was stolen, but some of it matches reports going back six months, Beeman said.
Most of the recovered goods were construction equipment, Beeman said.
Assisting in the arrests were Tehama County Drug Enforcement Agents, District Attorney Investigators, Tehama Inter-agency Drug Enforcement agents and the California Highway Patrol.
Anyone who has had property stolen in about the past year is encouraged to call the police department at 530-527-3131 to see if the property matches.
