Police arrested a convicted felon Friday evening after a weeks-long search for the man accused of possessing firearms began.
The arrest happened outside a residence in the 900 block of East Woodland Lane after 5 p.m. Officers contained the residence with the help of a K9 unit, helicopter and an armored vehicle. The suspect, 24-year-old Clayton Addleman, surrendered peacefully.
Through several sources, Addleman was thought to be in possession of a handgun, but was found to be unarmed. The location of the handgun is being sought, said Cpt. Joe Ward of Glendora Police.
Addleman, a convicted felon, is not allowed to possess firearms, Ward said.
Addleman was initially sought by Glendora officers April 15, wanted for possessing firearms and dangerous fireworks, said Sgt. Chris Stabio of Glendora Police. While serving the warrant at a home in the 800 block of South Starcrest Drive, several people, including Addleman, fled.
Officers saw two assault rifles inside the Starcrest home in plain view. Detectives wrote a search warrant and once inside, police additionally found four handguns, various ammunition, more than 1,000 Xanax pills, a scale and speed loader for the missing handgun, Ward said.
The two other men who fled the Starcrest home were later arrested, police booking records show. They were since issued citations and released.
Addleman was booked on suspicion of possessing drugs for sale, being a felon in possession of firearms and possession of illegal assault weapons.
Court date information was not yet available.
