Rueben Ortiz, who lives there was not home at the time of the search, but was arrested later in the day.

The Special Operations Division did a fantastic job in this case taking that information and acting upon it. Simply said, we need the public’s assistance. Great work to all involved," said Sheriff Chris Prine.
