A Thousand Palms man and prior felon is behind bars after being arrested for having dangerous weapons, drugs and military-grade gear, police said.
The Coachella Valley Violent Crime Gang Task Force conducted a probation check at a home off Los Flores Way around noon Friday.
Agents found two 9mm semi-automatic handguns, ammunition, what they suspected to be methamphetamine, and military-issued body armor.
Task force officers arrested the previously convicted felon. He is also a documented criminal street gang member, police said.
The suspect is facing felony charges and a violation of his probation.
