Officers made four arrests Sunday at a Lavon Lane home that has posed problems for police with an extensive history for suspicious activity, fights and drugs.

At 8:23 a.m. officers on extra patrol in the 2200 block of Lavon Lane spotted two people in the garage and approached them. Officers located 39 grams of methamphetamine and $2,300 in cash.

Kristine Gilmore, 24, of Ceres, was arrested for possession of narcotics and possession for sale. Steven Ramirez, 55, of Ceres, was arrested for possession of narcotics and outstanding warrants.

The cash and drugs were seized as evidence, said Ceres Police Sgt. Jose Berber.

Police also arrested Nicholas Ringler, 40, of Wyoming, who was found with a loaded .25 caliber handgun inside his pocket as he was interrupted from a sleep in a car parked in front of the house. Ringler was booked for possession of a loaded handgun.

Later that day at 3:33 p.m. officers went back on continued reports of suspicious people in the garage. When an officer rolled up, Jose Raya, 31, of Ceres, was seen darting into the garage. The officer parked around the corner and walked up to the home and located Raya, who was wanted for two outstanding drug warrants. Raya struggled with officers but was arrested and booked for the warrants and for delaying and resisting an officer.
