Police say nine people were arrested and booked into San Luis Obispo County Jail on Wednesday following the service of a search warrant in the 4900 block of Carrizo Rd. in Atascadero.

Two adjoining properties were reportedly searched after police say they learned that drugs were being sold there and that there may be stolen guns on site.

Because police believed some of the people on the properties could be dangerous, SWAT was called to serve the search warrant.

Atascadero police say the search revealed evidence of drug sales and they found what’s believed to be stolen property. They’re now working to determine the rightful owners of those items.
