Fresno gang member posted Facebook photo with weapons, police say

A Parkside Bulldog gang member in central Fresno allegedly posted a Facebook photo with weapons and a large sum of money.

Police found Gabriel Rabara, 30, on Saturday during a probation check at 1652 N. Sixth St.

After searching the house, police said they found a .25-caliber handgun and a loaded magazine in Rabara’s bedroom. Police also said they found a speed loader for a revolver and a small digital scale.

The weapons found during the search are the same weapons that are seen in the Facebook post, police said.

Rabara denied knowledge of the firearm in the house.

Police said Rabara has previous felony convictions that prohibit him from having weapons.

He was booked into the Fresno County Jail for illegal possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and gang member in possession of a firearm, police said.
