Arrests are made in a firearms case. Late last month officers arrived to the Meadows Apartments located on Fremont Street in Chico after reports of loud bangs being heard in the area. Officers saw a man in the area allegedly armed with a handgun. The suspect, identified as 22-year-old Alexander Valdovinos was arrested for negligent discharge of a firearm and other gun related charges.
Detectives later searched Valdovinos' apartment where they reportedly located multiple firearms. They also discovered six illegal high capacity ammunition magazines along with hundreds of rounds of ammunition. According to a Chico Police Department press release, Ecstasy along with five thousand dollars in cash were allegedly found inside a safe. Another suspect, identified as Cameron Power was discovered to be connected to Valdovinos. He turned himself into authorities earlier this week.
