RAMONA, Calif. — Three people — two of them felons — were behind bars Friday after a search of a Ramona home allegedly turned up a slew of drugs, guns and ammunition.

Mark Miller, 62, Cheryl Ganser, 55, and Dina Arce, 41, were all taken into custody after sheriff’s deputies and detectives serving a search warrant descended on a residence on San Vicente Road near Gem Lane Thursday morning, sheriff’s Sgt. John Boyce said.

Inside the home, sheriff’s personnel allegedly found 17 firearms, 1,000 rounds of ammunition, 36 grams of methamphetamine, prescription medication, a sheet of LSD, drug paraphernalia and items related to the sale of narcotics including packaging materials and scales, Boyce said.

Boyce said Miller and Ganser were arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance while armed, being a felon in possession of firearms and being a felon in possession of ammunition. Miller faced an additional charge of possession of a controlled substance for sale, and Ganser for possession of a controlled substance.

Arce was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and being under the influence of a controlled substance, according to the sergeant.
