An Orange resident who is reporteldy a convicted felon turned himself into police and was arrested on multiple charges, including two counts of possession of an assault weapon.
The arrest stems from an incident in November of 2012 in which police responded to the man's residence on report of a medical emergency and found him unconscious. Medical treatment was administered to the man, who police identified as Brent Rammer, 37, of 3133 Avalon Drive East in Orange.
While there, police reportedly observed various narcotics and firearms within plain sight. Officers seized prescription and illegal drugs, as well as two assault rifles and ammunition, according to a report provided by the Orange Police Department.
"The arrestee was determined to be a convicted felon and therefore unable to legally possess firearms," the report states.
Rammer was arrested by warrant at police headquarters at 10:24 a.m. on Feb. 17. He was charged with:
- Criminal possession of a firearm (two counts)
- Possession of an assault weapon (two counts)
- Possession of a controlled substance
- Possession of narcotics
Rammer was released after posting a $20,000 bond, police said, and he was due in court March 1.
