PHELAN, Calif. (VVNG.com) A search warrant at a Phelan home resulted in two arrests, an AR-15 with a 30 round magazine and the discovery of multiple stolen vehicles at various locations, officials said.

On September 6, 2017, members of the High Desert Regional Gang Team were in the town of Phelan conducting active enforcement. As they patrolled the area they located a stolen vehicle. Deputies attempted a traffic stop but the driver pulled the vehicle into a residence located in the 7000 block of 7th Street in Phelan.

“A male subject from another involved vehicle ran into the residence in an attempt to hide Methamphetamine he had in his possession,” sheriff’s officials said in a news release.

Deputies obtained a search warrant and once inside the residence they located an AR-15 with a 30 round magazine and Methamphetamine was also located and seized.

Scott Allen, 52, and Dennis Sebo, 39, were arrested and booked into the High Desert Detention Center for charges including possession of a stolen vehicle, felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition and possession of Methamphetamine.

As a result of the investigation, two additional search warrants were served in the County area of Oro Grande. Seven additional stolen vehicles were recovered including a 2013 Harley Davidson, a pistol grip shotgun and Methamphetamine packaged for sales.
