LANCASTER — Authorities serving a search warrant Thursday in Lancaster arrested two teenage boys and seized 25 guns, a sheriff’s sergeant said.

Personnel from the Palmdale and Lancaster Sheriff’s stations served a search warrant around 6 a.m. at 134 West Newgrove St., said Sgt. Russel Wilson of the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station.

Two boys, ages 16 and 17, were booked on suspicion of possession of illegal weapons, possession of stolen property, being a minor in possession of a firearm and possession of an unregistered assault weapon.

During the search, deputies recovered 25 firearms, including 12-gauge shotguns and a 50-caliber pistol. Thousands of rounds of ammunition, two computers and gang paraphernalia were also recovered, Wilson said.

The warrant was based on information gathered from the Internet describing gang activity in the Antelope Valley, Wilson said. He would not be more specific

More arrests were pending, he said.
