Two men armed with firearms and a quantity of methamphetamine for sale were arrested Tuesday night in Kerman, police reported.
They were identified as Mat Vogt, 38, of Kerman, and Frankie Luna Ochoa, 30, of Mendota.
Sgt. Chris Nelson said the arrest occurred after officers made a traffic stop at Siskiyou and Jensen avenues about 10 p.m. and seized an AK-47 rifle, a handgun, five ounces of the drug, and cash. The contraband was stashed in the engine compartment of the vehicle, said Nelson. One of the guns was reportedly stolen in Fresno.
Vogt, who was out on bail on previous charges of possession of drugs for sale, was booked on weapons and drug charges.
Ochoa, who was on probation, was booked on charges of giving false information to police.
