Police from Martinez, Oakland and the FBI were on the Island early Wednesday morning working with local police to serve a search warrant in the 300 block of Lina Avenue.
(I had to look it up, too: Lina Avenue is in the Bayport housing development tucked next to College of Alameda off Ralph Appezzato Memorial Parkway.)
But law enforcement went to the wrong house first, disturbing a couple and their newborn. The home happened to be that of political consultant Alex Clemens and CBS reporter Priya David. So the news was out.
Clemens told law enforcement that he and David had purchased the house three months earlier, and that the prior owners lived across the street, CBS reported.
Police then secured a new search warrant. They were looking for marijuana, items associated with the drug's cultivation and sale, and also firearms.
When they made it to the correct house, police found two handguns, a rifle and a shotgun, they said. They arrested 43-year-old Sang Ung of Alameda on an unrelated warrant, Martinez police Lt. Jon Sylvia said.
The investigation that led to today's raids began in late August when Martinez police discovered an indoor marijuana grow in a rental house in Martinez.
On Aug. 29, police arrested Ung, of Alameda, and his 27-year-old brother Mang Ung, of Oakland, in connection with that grow, which included about 500 young plants, Sylvia said.
The brothers were booked into county jail in Martinez, but later posted bail, Sylvia reported.
Police also served a second warrant in the 2600 block of Ninth Avenue in Oakland on Wednesday. They found an indoor marijuana grow with about 80 plants, Sylvia said.
