Auto theft detectives Thursday recovered a .380 caliber handgun stolen from a Madera home when they stopped a stolen car.
Sgt. Doug Goertzen of the Career Criminal Auto Theft Team said detectives spotted a 1991 Chevy pickup at Maple and Olive that turned out to have been stolen from Central Fresno.
Goertzen said that as the officers approached the vehicle, a suspect identified as Skinhead gang member Goeffrey Guess, 30, on parole for assault on a peace officer tossed the gun before he was arrested. Guess was booked for being a felon in possession of a firearm and a parole violation.
