San Jose Man Arrested for Manufacturing Illegal Firearms

A 25-year-old man from San Jose was apprehended last week by the San Jose Police Department on suspicion of manufacturing illegal firearms. The arrest came after an extensive investigation into the production of privately made firearms within the city. Officer Tanya Hernandez of the San Jose Police Department announced the arrest in a news release on Tuesday.

Following the identification of the suspect, law enforcement officials executed a search warrant at the individual’s residence on March 8. The search yielded significant evidence, including three firearms, six machine gun conversion devices, a silencer, ammunition, firearm manufacturing materials, and two 3D printers. It was determined that the 3D printers were being utilized to produce illegal firearms for sale.

The suspect, whose identity has not been disclosed, was taken into custody and subsequently booked into Santa Clara County jail. He faces multiple firearm-related charges and is being held on $250,000 bail, according to jail records.

The San Jose Police Department encourages anyone with information related to this case or similar incidents to contact Detective Peterson at 408-537-3835. Alternatively, tips can be provided anonymously to Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers at 408-947-7867 (STOP).
