Fresno Narcotics and Firearm Crime:
The Fresno Bee reported that gang members where arrested with a handgun in the center consul of their vehicle. Complicating the criminal offense was that one of the gang members were found to be in possession of Cocaine, which was concealed on his person. The ages of the alleged gang members was 27 years old and a mere 19 years old. It is a bad start to life when a 19 year old will likely be labeled as a gang member and felon for the remainder of his life. Job prospects will be bleak and a prison sentence is very possible for this crime even if it is his first offense.
A second controlled substance was found as well. The prescription (Rx) cough syrup Promethazine was found in the vehicle. Promethazine is a prescription narcotic which has become quite popular in recent years as a recreational narcotic.
