Two people were arrested Friday for not only alleged weapons-related charges, but also placing a loaded gun near a toddler.
Detectives and officers assigned to a gang suppression operation made a traffic stop in the 1400 block of East Alluvial Avenue for unknown reasons.
Police say Christian Castellanos and Xitlalli Cruz were arrested for allegedly being in possession of a firearm and child endangerment.
Castellanos is allegedly a west Fresno gang member.
“Detectives located the firearm next to a car seat where Cruz’s toddler was sitting,“ a department news release says.
The two were booked into Fresno County Jail.
