Convicted felon arrested for possessing stolen gun, narcotics for sale

 

The Menlo Park Police Department's Narcotic Enforcement Team, the San Mateo County Narcotics Task Force and the FBI arrested a 41-year-old man on Monday morning after serving a search warrant at his residence in the 2300 block of Clarke Avenue in East Palo Alto.

Detectives and agents found "large amounts of cocaine base packaged for sales, large amounts of prescription medications for sale, a loaded stolen firearm, ammunition and cash," the police report said.

Lamar Johnson was booked into the San Mateo County Jail for allegedly possessing controlled substances for sale, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, possessing both controlled substances and a firearm, and possessing stolen property.

The search warrant resulted from a month-long investigation of alleged on-going sales of cocaine base by Mr. Johnson, police said.
