Guns, Meth and Weed Allegedly Found During Search of Home

Law enforcement allegedly found marijuana, meth and guns when a search warrant was served early Wednesday in the 42000 block of De Portola Road in unincorporated Temecula, according to a news release.

A narcotics-related search warrant served Wednesday near Temecula resulted in the arrest of two people.

Law enforcement served the warrant at about 7:40 a.m. Wednesday in the 42000 block of De Portola in unincorporated Temecula, according to Temecula police Sgt. Geoff Green.

"During the search of the property, approximately 10.5 ounces of marijuana, small amounts of methamphetamine and guns were located," Green said, in a news release.

Ronald Leroy McGinnis, 69, of Temecula was taken into custody on suspicion of possession—and being under the influence—of a controlled substance, as well as for being a convicted felon in possession of firearms, the sergeant said.

Also arrested was Cheryl Lynn Cleave, 46, of Temecula, on a misdemeanor charge of allegedly being under the influence of a controlled substance.

Both were booked into Southwest Detention Center.

McGinnis was being held in lieu of $5,000 and was due in court Friday.

Cleave was cited and released on $2,500 bail. She was due in court Feb. 13, 2013.

The Temecula Police Department's Special Enforcement Team, the Temecula Police Department's Problem Oriented Policing Team and the Riverside County Gang Task Force collaborated in serving the search warrant, Green said.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation was encouraged to contact the Temecula Police Department's Special Enforcement Team at 951-696-3000.
