Deputies responding to a domestic violence call Friday night arrested a 53-year-old Lake Elsinore man after finding several jars of marijuana and concentrated cannabis, as well as firearms and ammunition, according to the Sheriff’s Department.
Antonio Garcia Gonzalez was detained around 8 p.m. after his wife reported that he had assaulted her and was possibly armed, according to Sgt. David Cardoza. Deputies detained Gonzalez at the residence in the 18000 block of Dexter Avenue and arrested him after it was determined that he had physically abused his wife, according to Cardoza.
While they were at the house, deputies confiscated five rifles, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, storage jars containing marijuana and concentrated cannabis, digital scales, drug paraphernalia and $700 in cash, according to Cardoza.
Gonzalez was arrested for spousal abuse and possession of marijuana for sale and booked into the Southwest Detention Center.
