Galt man arrested on multiple felony weapons charges | News
Daniel Philip Cordero, 32, of Galt was arrested Thursday morning March 11th in his motel room on the 4300 block of Madison Avenue in Sacramento County.
At 7:19 a.m. on Thursday morning, a motel security officer contacted the Sacramento County Sheriff’s communications center and stated that when he looked in the window of a room that was supposed to be vacant, he saw guns, high-capacity magazines, and a silencer down the bed .
MPs arrived at the motel and found Cordero, who was known to law enforcement, in the room.
Initially, Cordero was not cooperative and refused to leave the room.
The Sacramento County’s Sheriff’s Office Special Enforcement Detail (SED) and Critical Incident Negotiation Team (CINT) came to assist the patrolmen with evacuating neighboring rooms and ensuring peaceful compliance. After two and a half hours, the negotiators were able to convince Cordero, who was the only inmate, to leave the room where the MPs had arrested him without incident.
After receiving a search warrant, detectives searched Cordero’s room and vehicle.
The search resulted in an AR15 rifle modified as an assault rifle under the California Penal Code, a semi-automatic pistol, ammunition, advanced ammunition magazines, silencers and ballistic safety equipment. All confiscated items will be held as evidence in the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office Property Warehouse.
Cordero has been sent to Sacramento County Main Prison on multiple criminal weapon charges, including a criminal in possession of a firearm. Cordero is being held on bail of $ 50,000 and due in court on March 29th.
There are currently no other suspects pending.
This is not Cordero’s first violation of the law. Galt Police were called to a house in Galt in July 2014, where Cordero and his girlfriend had barricaded themselves in a house on Moose Creek Way.
Elk Grove-Galt’s SWAT team was dispatched and shortly before entering the residence, Cordero surrendered to the police.
Both Cordero and his girlfriend were arrested during the incident.
Police retrieved a gun and ammunition from the residence.
