Representatives within the Martinez Jail have confirmed that two people have been booked into the Contra Costa County Jail after they were arrested on weapons charges.
The suspects, who have been identified as 46-year-old Patricia Rubio and 54 year-old Richard Mulvaney face a slew of felony charges. Authorities raided their Bay Point home in late March after they received a tip that weapons were being trafficked out of the residence.
The home was raided during the last week of March, according to a report by Kron4.com; authorities found 25 high-capacity magazines, two shotguns, six rifles, one assault shotgun eight assault rifles and one pistol on the premises.
A spokesperson for the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Department also said that more than 1,300 rounds of ammo was confiscated from the home.
Rubio’s bail bonds have been set at $200,000. It’s believed that Mulvaney was issued a no-bail bonds hold due to a probation violation. It will be up to a judge to decide whether the no-bail hold will be lifted.
