Police Raid Gang Stash House

Posted: Updated:

GRANDVIEW--Police confiscate tens of thousands of dollars in stolen property from a gang's stash house in Sunnyside.

Officers from the Grandview and Sunnyside Police Departments, the LEAD Task Force, Washington State Patrol, Yakima County Sheriff's Office, U.S. Marshals Service, and the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms found televisions, computers, electronics and power tools in a home on the 800 block of West Edison Avenue.

They also found roughly a dozen guns, including a sawed-off shotgun, an AK-47 and several loaded handguns.

Police could connect them to unsolved shootings.

"Some of the people there are self-admitted gang members," Sgt. Kal Fuller, Grandview Police Department, said.  "We're still investigating individual weapons and trying to trace them to individual crimes.  We're waiting for information to come back from the crime lab."

Fuller said they also found a small amount of methamphetamine.

Brothers Marcos and Robert Cruz, and Sandra Cardenas were charged with possession and trafficking of stolen property, along with several other offenses.

Fuller said many people won't get their stolen property back because they did not provide police with serial numbers when the property was stolen.  Without proof of ownership, police departments can't give out the stolen goods.
