CORCORAN — A man and woman from Corcoran were both arrested Thursday on various drug and firearm charges, Corcoran Police Department officials said.

Around 9:15 a.m., officials said Corcoran Police officers, members of the California Department of Corrections and CDC Parole conducted a compliance search at a residence in the 2000 block of Cedar Avenue.

Police said 31-year-old Mario Nunez and 27-year-old Gloria Gomez were contacted at the residence. They said Nunez is on active CDC parole and was the subject of the search.

During the search, officers said they located a large amount of marijuana and marijuana oil packaged for sale, weighing scales and over $7,300 in cash. Officers also found a loaded handgun, rifle parts and ammunition. They said the handgun was determined to have been reported stolen from Tulare.

At the time of the search, officials said three children ages 5 years, 3 years and 3 months were inside the residence. All of the items located were accessible to the children, police said.

Authorities said Nunez and Gomez were arrested and booked into the Corcoran Police Department on suspicion of possession of marijuana for sale, possession of a stolen firearm, being a felon in possession of a firearm, firearm parts and ammunition, and child endangerment.

The department said Nunez was later transported to the Kings County Jail and a no-bail parole was issued. Officials said Gomez was later released pending further investigation.
