The county Gang Task Force confiscated two guns, methamphetamine, prescription pills and a small amount of heroin when agents stopped a vehicle for a minor violation in Watsonville on Wednesday evening, according to Sheriff's Sgt. Stefan Fish, who oversees the task force.
Tyler Webb, 26, of Santa Cruz was driving when the vehicle was pulled over on Holm Road at Jeanette Way just after 7 p.m. A Watsonville woman, 22-year-old Fallon Furtado, was with him in the vehicle, according to Fish.
The Task Force agents — a Watsonville cop and a sheriff's deputy — reportedly discovered methamphetamine, which was determined to be possessed with the intent to sell, as well as prescription pills, a small amount of heroin and two handguns in the vehicle, Fish said.
Weber was arrested on suspicion of drug possession with the intent to sell and several gun-related violations, Fish said.
Furtado was arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs and other drug-related offenses, according to Fish.
Investigators are still trying to determine where the handguns came from and if they had been stolen. This marks the 17th gun seizure this year by the county Gang Task Force.
