On January 17, 2012, at approximately 11:06 am, Milpitas Police officers arrested Johnny Munoz for being a felon in possession of weapons and drugs. Munoz, a known parolee, and Ramon Garcia, a 21 year-old transient were stopped by officers on the 900 block of Jacklin Road. During the stop officers found brass knuckles in Munoz's possession. He was arrested for possession of an illegal weapon. Garcia, who was also on parole, was in possession of several baggies of methamphetamine. Garcia was arrested for possession of a controlled substance for sale.
The officers then conducted a parole search at Munoz's home where they found and seized three handguns, a rifle, numerous rounds of ammunition and a container of concentrated cannabis. California law prohibits parolees and anyone convicted of a felony from possessing firearms or ammunition.
Munoz was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for possession of a firearm(s), possession of ammunition, possession of metal knuckles and possession of concentrated cannabis. Garcia was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for possession of a controlled substance for sale.
