More Than 500 Guns Seized From Clovis Home of Man With Mental Health Issues
CLOVIS, Calif. — The biggest weapons seizure ever made in a single home by the California Department of Justice, and it happened in Clovis — more than 500 firearms and 100,000 rounds of ammunition.”I believe it makes the neighborhood safer as well as the state of California,” said DOJ Special Agent-In-Charge Michael Haroldsen.State agents arrested 59-year-old Albert Sheakalee at his home last week.Sheakalee didn’t deny having the impressive haul of weapons — including ten assault weapons, 88 shotguns and 234 rifles. But his son tells Action News it was a bogus government gun grab — even though state agents say Sheakalee isn’t allowed to own any guns. Wall-to-wall guns filled a conference room at the California Department of Justice Fresno office — all of them seized Thursday at the same Clovis home. From run-of-the-mill handguns to a military style 50-caliber rifle, agents say Albert Sheakalee had it all. “And then you see the numerous assault weapons that we have here,” Haroldsen said as he showed a reporter the array of weapons.
