Search Warrant Leads to Guns and Drugs

In the early morning hours of May 21, 2014, members of the Hemet San Jacinto Valley Gang Task Force served a search warrant in the 900 block of Washington Ave, San Jacinto. The Gang Task Force was assisted by members of the City of San Jacinto Police Department, City of Hemet Police Department, and the Post-Release Accountability & Corrections Team.
The search warrant resulted in the recovery of approximately a quarter pound of methamphetamine and four firearms.

San Jacinto resident, James Farnsworth 44 years, was arrested for possession of a controlled substance for sales, felon in possession of a firearm, felon in possession of ammunition, possession of a methamphetamine while armed with a firearm, and committing a felony while out on bail. In late April 2014, Farnsworth was arrested for weapons violations and was released on bail.

Riverside resident, Mary Carson 29 years, was also arrested in the investigation for a Santa Barbara County domestic violence warrant.

Hemet San Jacinto Valley resident, Brittany Wright 24 years, was arrested in the investigation for a Riverside County possession of stolen property warrant.

The Hemet San Jacinto Gang Task Force is comprised of members from the Hemet Police Department, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, San Jacinto Police Department, Riverside County District Attorney’s Office, Riverside County Probation Department, California Highway Patrol, and the U.S. Border Patrol. The law enforcement leadership within the valley meets regularly and coordinates the Hemet San Jacinto Gang Task Force activities.
